WELCOME TO

THRIVE STUDENT MINISTRIES

Come on out for relevent messages, worship, fun games, snacks, and relationships with other Christian students in our community. But most importantly, come on out and experience Christ.

Thrive exists to see students experiencing Christ in a way that is totally relevant to them today. We desire to grow closer together through active fellowship. We seek to grow closer to God through worship. We long to learn more about Him through discipleship.  We actively seek out opportunities in our community to evangelize. We also are constantly looking for better ways to develop ministry  skills in our students.

HEY PARENTS!

Thrive exists for one purpose: to build thriving relationships with God, with family, and with each other. One of our core focuses is the family. We want to help bring your family closer together. We consistantly gather resources for parents, send out monthly parenting emails and encourage families to participate in annual experiences with their teenagers called Rite of Passage Experiences (ROPE).

 

  These ROPE experiences are incredible ways for you to connect with your teenager in every way possible and guide them through their adolescent years. We want to make these materials are available to you 24/7! We also are more than willing to assist you in preparing and executing these experiences as well! Just click the image to the right for these free materials!

 

On top of the ROPE Experiences, I've gathered some other materials to help you out in different areas of parenting. I hope this can encourage you and assist you in being an effective, but more importantly, godly parent to your teenager. I hope it encourages you!
