Fusion exists to help students walk with Christ for life.

Fusion, our youth group, is for 7th–12th grade students. Fusion is more than just a holding tank with pizza. We want to see our youth come to know Jesus, love Jesus, and follow Jesus for their entire life. Fusion is a fun and comfortable environment that stresses Biblical truth and discipleship relationships, equipping students with the Gospel message. At Fusion we want to welcome students into our fellowship, equip our students with the power of the Gospel, and send them out with a vision beyond themselves. We hope that Fusion will not be just a youth group but a youth movement.

Ministry Director

Joe Catterson

Joe graduated from University of Kansas in Secondary Education. Joe grew up in Manhattan going to New Hope. He joined the Fusion youth at 11 years old and, after being poured into by the Fusion staff, accepted Jesus as His Lord and Savior when he was 16 years old. Joe is married to Olivia, and they have one young son.

Joe wants to partner with parents to see the young men and women of New Hope grow and mature in their faith, and to equip students to take up their cross and walk with Christ in every aspect of their lives.
