Thrive Children’s Ministry’s mission is to provide a safe environment for children to discover Christ’s love as they learn to creatively grow as a leader.
It takes a team of committed lovers of God to raise passionate young disciples to serve the Lord. Our Thrive leadership team works together for that same goal. We believe that the gifting of the Lord are given even at an early age. So we anticipate that our children move in those giftings.
“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty” ~ 1 Corth 1:27
Our children can be pretty foolish at times, but even God can use them to confound us wise adults. We are working to look beyond the outward child and look into the same Holy Spirit inside our children that is inside us and be willing to receive all that they have to offer. With an atmosphere encouraging young people to connect with God through worship, leading by example, full of fun and creativity, mixed in with the growing knowledge of the love of our heavenly Father, we are developing amazing young world changers for His Kingdom.
We believe in our children as young developing God-loving leaders. Through our Jr. Leaders program, we are building a team of young people ages 11-14 years old to train to become world changers. Jr. Leaders are trained to lead our younger classes in prayer, praise & worship, games, memory verse, lesson teachings, drama skits, and so much more. We empower our preteens/new teens to stretch out and reach beyond what they thought they might be capable. This brings confidence as they learn themselves all the gifting and talents God has placed inside them. Jr Leaders also learn the love of giving of their time and serving others in a very fun and creative way.
Thrive could not be run with only one or two people. We have an amazing core team of volunteers. However, we are always looking for more volunteers to help come along and join our team. Come spend some time with us and you will see how fantastic our young people are and how much YOU are needed to bless a child.
