THE THRIVE CHURCH STORY
believe in the impossible, because our God can do all things. Every
step we take as a church family is a step that is expectant for another
miraculous God story. It is our goal that as you get connected, you’ll find
people who see you and see all that you’re capable of. We hope that as
you read our story further, you’ll find encouragement for your own place
in life and discover the endless possibility for what it means to walk by
faith and find your dreams realized.
Pastors Jacob & Hannah had long dreamed of planting a church centered
on the goal of seeing people thrive with new life in Christ. That dream
became a reality in 2013, as 29 people moved across the country to
launch Thrive Church. Setup that first weekend at Mammoth Heights
Elementary School took 14 hours. Yet, each team member involved was
excited to take part in what God was doing.
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, and
more than 2,000 people attended. 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 Courageous (a men’s event), added
more staff, and increased our office space. In 2018, we hosted Flourish at
the Paramount Theater in Denver with some of the nation’s top speakers,
and released our first worship EP.
Beyond the places and spaces God has taken us, there is a significantly
greater story that encompasses 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.
And we truly feel we are just getting started. We believe God is beginning
a movement in this region 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.
