Multiplying Healthy Leaders Worldwide
Thrive Ministries is a cooperative of international pastors, church overseers
and five-fold ministers who work together in multiplying healthy leaders worldwide.
It started in the fall of 1995. I was minding my own business during my morning prayers in the church building. Part of my prayer regimen was to pray through a book entitled Operation World, a guide for praying for the greatest needs of every nation in the world (www.operationworld.org). As I was praying for a particular country in Eastern Europe I read a simple sentence that changed everything for me:
Bible training for existing and future leaders is a great need. The average pastor
supervises five churches. Most new churches lack a pastor, and many pastors lack
training. This has hindered church growth.
I still cannot explain what happened next…
The Story of Thrive Ministries
The story of pastors in the nations and how Thrive Ministries works together to supply them with resources and relationships that help multiply healthy leaders worldwide. The heartbeat Thrive Ministries is to train the untrained so they can reach the unreached. You can join with us to help these heroes.
A far-off continent, a remote village, an impossible coincidence… is this what it takes to discover what’s inside a man?
The Same River Twice takes the reader on a fantastic journey to another world and an unfamiliar culture. But it is really a journey into the equally unfamiliar territory of the wounds of a fatherless heart. And the road to healing.
