THRIVE provides students with a unique balance of classroom learning and practical application. As disciples of Jesus Christ, He is our greatest example of how to live life. In Matthew 20:28, we see the example that Jesus set for his followers as it says, "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many". Ministry Placements are about following in the footsteps of Jesus and learning to serve rather than being served.
Discipleship is a balance of learning and applying. We want to provide space for our students to live out what they are learning about in the classroom. Students will be actively engaged in the Church and then Community in various service and volunteer opportunities within the growing THRIVE network of partnerships. Ministry is about stepping out into our world, as the body of Christ, and serving together as the hands and feet of Jesus.
