Modular in format
For roughly three weeks, students fully immerse themselves in a single topic at a time, allowing for easy retention and for opportunities to integrate knowledge and practical experience. The program is 8-months in length, running September to April.
Students live together in a community-shared campus while participating in the basic rhythms and routines of life as part of the discipleship experience.
Connection with a church is crucial to spiritual formation. Students participate in the life of their home church through shared experience, testimony, assignment work, and involvement with a mentor throughout the year.
Staff members are not just teachers, but mentors who walk alongside participants through each component of the program.
The program integrates learning with a range of experiences and practical ministry opportunities.
Thrive is designed to help participants engage various cultural realities with joy and integrity.
