Thrive Youth Ministries


Thrive Youth Ministries

Is specifically geared for youth students that are currently in 6th-12th grade, and is led by Pastor Andrew Heller
and Pastor Jeremy Stasiowski. Thrive Youth service is on Sunday evenings from 6pm until 8pm.

 Loving God

At Thrive we press in to learning about and growing in a real relationship with Jesus. We do this by gathering
together to worship, study God’s word, and interact in small group settings. We also encourage students to join
us weekly for Breakfast and Bible study. Additionally, we invite all of our students to sit with us in the teen section
on Sunday mornings during church starting at 10am.

Loving People

Thrive Youth Ministries is committed to linking with others around us. We challenge our students weekly to
invite their friends who don’t yet know Jesus. Beyond our youth service, Thrive goes out into our community
and our world to love and serve others. We do this through local outreach opportunities and yearly mission
trips. In the past we have traveled to Cleveland, Jamaica, West Virginia, Los Angeles, and many other places
to serve.

                                                                              Living Transformed

Our goal is that every student who is a part of Thrive learns how to live a transformed life. For too long, we
have seen our students survive their way through school, sports, and life. We want our students Thrive!
We desire to see our students living out their faith even when it isn’t easy. We do our best to help our students
to continue to take their next step in their personal relationship with Jesus. As our students grow, we encourage
them to not go back to their old ways of living, but to be different because God has incredible plans for their life!
(1st Pet. 1:14, Jer. 29:11)
