Pastor Jacob & Hannah dreamed of planting a church with the goal of seeing people thrive with new life in Christ. That dream became a reality in 2013 when Thrive Church began with 29 people moving cross country to launch a church. During the first weekend, set up at Mammoth Heights Elementary School took 14 hours. Yet, each team member surrounding them was excited to take part in what God would do.
Since then, we have seen God add to His church as one experience became two allowing us to reach more people in 2014. In 2015, we had an Easter outreach that grabbed the attention of the community which saw over 2,000 people attend. In 2016, we moved to a perfect new location, Parker Performing Arts School. We also started Flourish (a women’s conference), added staff, and got office space. In 2017, we launched a student ministry, started a men’s event, added more staff, and increased our office space. In 2018, we will host Flourish at the Paramount Theater with some of the nations top speakers and launch our first worship EP.
Beyond the places and spaces where God has taken us, there is a significantly greater story that encompases what God has done in the lives of so many people. We have seen hundreds of people find faith in Christ. Many have been baptized. It has been an honor to see people come alive to their spiritual purpose as they jump in and serve in an area of their passion. Thousands of people have been impacted nationally and globally as we have had the privilege of giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars to missions.
We truly feel that we are just getting started. We believe that God is beginning a movement in this city that will spread the message of Jesus to thousands of people who are far from Christ. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to seek God with passion.
