Training on how to run a Thrive! campaign (and any other campaign) in your church coming in November--Sign up now!

Thrive! Campaign Printed Materials Available at Training Events

The Thrive! Campaign is about fulfilling our synod’s vision of being “Stronger and Better Together: Joining Jesus in the Restoration of the World.” That means it’s about helping congregations and their leaders –– both lay and rostered –– grow in their ministries for the sake of the gospel.

Training on how to run a Thrive! campaign in your church is being offered in November, as shown below. Campaign Manuals, brochures, bulletin inserts, and other printed materials for Thrive! will be distributed at those training events, which means now is the time to register your Congregation Leader(s) and/or Stewardship Team to attend so we can have your materials ready for you. (Pastors are encouraged to attend, also.)
