ABOUT THRIVE YOUTH
THRIVE Youth Ministry serves students in grades 6-12. Our purpose is to reach, raise up, and release this generation! We do this in three ways.
1. THRIVE exists to ENCOUNTER God! Through worship, small groups, altar ministry, and the Word of God we put high value and focus on Jesus Christ and His Presence. We also have a passion to share the Gospel and see this generation REACHED by the knowledge Jesus.
2. THRIVE ministry exists to EQUIP this generation! We are rooted and grounded in Him and His Love. We have a strong emphasis on small group mentoring and ministry. We offer discipleship opportunities throughout the year in our Equip classes and varies conferences and outreaches. We place a strong emphasis on the Word of God and the belief of its insurpassable power in our lives. In doing so we believe teens will be RAISED up connected to God in a personal way, and have a lifelong relationship and pursuit of God.
3. THRIVE ministry exists to EMPOWER the Church! We believe in the strength in numbers in the Body of Christ. We are raising them up to RELEASE them to change their world.
Ephesians 3:14-21 (MSG)
My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God. God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia!
