Jesus says in John 10:10b, “ I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” Another way of saying “abundantly” is “greater than.” We believe that God doesn't just want us to live this life, but to THRIVE in everything we do in this life. Jesus came to give us a life that is greater than anything we can fathom; you and I were made to THRIVE!
In order for us to THRIVE in the life God has given us, Thrive Student Ministry of Evangel Assembly has 3 simple steps to help students live a life that thrives.
At Thrive, we connect with God through worship. Worship is a lifestyle and students will learn that worshiping God involves prayer, giving, and music. It is our desire to praise God, and declare His works throughout the world. Wednesday night is our main worship service and is geared for students to connect with God and other students. (John 4:23-24)
At Thrive, we believe we were never meant to do life alone. This why we have small groups to help students grow in their faith and to build Christ-centered friendships. Our Thrive group meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30am in the youth room. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
At Thrive, we believe that God has given every believer a variety of spiritual gifts to be used inside and outside of the church to share His love and fulfill His purposes (1 Corinthians 12). We want to give students an opportunity to discover, develop, and then use their gifts to serve within the church. It is our belief that we do ministry in teams and students will have an opportunity to serve on our six different ministry teams.
