Welcome to Thrive Student Ministry!

At Thrive, we seek to lead students truly thrive in their relationships with God and with others as they are rooted in God's Word, built up through fellowship, and sent out to serve the world. We do this by challenging them to be committed to Christ, connected to the church, and compassionate to the lost.

This philosophy is encapsulated in the scripture found in Colossians 2:6-7 when it says, “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”

We believe parents are a BIG deal and want to equip you to disciple your student at home. We know that volunteers are vital to our ministry so we want to provide opportunities for leaders to connect and be a voice in students’ lives. We also want to prepare students to be a witness on their campus and teach them how to share their stories with others.


We are so excited to have Sunday School back up and running since Hurricane Michael threw off our schedule! The following classes will be offered at 8:45 AM in the Student Building:

  • MS Boys

  • MS Girls

  • HS Boys

  • HS Girls

  • HS Seniors

  • Parents of Teens


From games to worship and Bible Study, you can find your place and have lots of fun, too! These high energy gatherings begin at 6:00 PM, but come early to hang out and meet some friends. We hope to see you soon!


Beginning Jan 20, we will have a time of Bible Study and discussion on various topics. We will also have a fellowship time for parents at the same time. Parents are invited to stay and be a part of this time of encouragement.



We love our middle schoolers! They are fun and awesome. That’s why we spend A LOT of time making things around here fun and awesome, just like them. And we’ve found that as they are having fun together, they really start to press in to the things that God is trying to teach them!



The last four years before the craziness of adult responsibilities hit! It’s a chaotic time in the life of a student and we want to play a part in preparing them for what’s to come by making it meaningful, but still crazy, awesome and fun!


College is awesome! We want to help make it even more awesome. Whether it’s a high adventure trip in the mountains or hanging out together in discipling communities, we want to help you grow in your relationships with God and others while you are trying to navigate what it means to be grown up. So if you’re only here for holidays and breaks or you’re here all the time, we have a place for you to hang!
