Catalyst Church Leadership


Lead Pastor, Zach Sutton

Hi, I'm Zach. I grew up in beautiful San Diego, California. I played baseball, cheered for the Padres and Chargers, and spent many afternoons on the beach. After high school I joined the United States Air Force as an avionics technician, working on F-15 & F-22 aircraft.  I've worked for the 58th FS located at Eglin AFB, in Florida; the 54th and 12th FS located at Elmendorf AFB, in Alaska; and finally, the 95th FS and 43d AMU located at Tyndall AFB, in Florida. 


I enjoyed serving my country, and in doing so met the most amazing woman in the whole world: my wife Sara. Sara is a passionate teacher of God’s Word and an encouraging supporter.  I became the happiest guy in the world when she accepted my proposal for marriage. After marrying and having children, I developed an insatiable appetite for God’s Word and teaching others.  


Stepping forward in my faith I started Seminary at Liberty University, finding a great church home and mentor-ship with Pastor Loren at The Bridge Community in Utah. I was blessed with an opportunity to serve alongside Pastor Loren as the Celebrate Recovery Ministry Leader.  Then, I began to feel the Lord calling me back to Florida, and more specifically to Northstar Church. I had the privilege of serving as a pastor at Northstar for nearly two years. As my desire for the Word grew, so did the desire to teach the Word. In August of 2014, I and the rest of the leadership crew launched Catalyst Church.  I completed Seminary with a Masters degree in Divinity (MDiv) from Liberty University in 2016 and I completed a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University in 2022.

Sara Sutton

Hello and welcome!  My name is Sara, and I am honored to be a wife and ministry partner to an amazing husband, Pastor Zach Sutton. I am blessed to be mother and home educator to five children ages 20, 19, 15, 14 & 14 (twins!) years old. I am passionate about my calling to help people find a deep and faith-filled life with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

​Although my primary responsibilities in this season are supporting my husband in his role as lead pastor at Catalyst, and educating my children at home, I also enjoy teaching occasionally as an Adjunct Professor of Ethics and Communication at GCSC--as well as counseling women, couples and teens through challenging life circumstances. I enjoy the privilege of serving in our community, writing, teaching, instructing and training others to delight in the Lord and all He has for us is a rewarding calling. Phil 4:8-9
