The workshop is brought to you by Thrive! and the generosity of many individuals and congregations who have donated to the campaign.
Campaign Remains on Hold
The Thrive! Mission Campaign is being postponed during the COVID-19 crisis while congregations and their leaders focus attention where it needs to be directed: caring for members and communities whose lives have been turned upside down by the pandemic. A revised plan will be announced once the crisis ebbs and the time is again appropriate to proceed with the Campaign.
Until that time, thanks to those of you who are blessed enough to continue fulfilling commitments already made to Thrive! … and God’s grace and peace to those who must redirect their money to take care of their needs or the needs of others who have lost jobs or otherwise been adversely affected by the crisis. We understand and will continue to use Thrive! resources to help church leaders care for their people during these unprecedented times.
