Thrive Student Ministries


Thrive Student Ministries’ vision is to “dig deep” and “reach out.” We dig deep into God’s Word and we reach out to those who don’t know Jesus. We minster to Jr. High (JV) and High School (Varsity) students. We have amazing Care Pastors who want to connect you to their Grove groups. Grove groups are small groups that encourage and care for one another. Each Care pastor is ready to lead this this next generation of world changers!

We dig deep in God:
1) Roots – Sunday Mornings @ 10 a.m. JV on 3rd floor of Sanctuary / Varsity in Youth Living Room
2) Vine Groups – 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings of the month. Locations in Grand Prairie and Oak Cliff.
3) Youth Service – Wednesdays @ 7 p.m. in the Youth Worship Center.
4) Prayer – Wednesday @ 6:30 p.m. in the youth center (parents welcome)
5) Camp and retreats – Annual summer camp at Lakeview and Winter/Spring retreats at Camp El Har
6) Branch Out nights – Once a month Wednesday small groups

We reach out to others through:
1) Bible clubs  – We are involved in over 6 Bible clubs on multiple campuses.
2) Once a month outings – Hang out with “Louie” on Monday’s in the summer and Tuesday’s during most school holidays
3) Service projects in our community – We team up with Dallas Metro, serve in neighborhoods, and support our local schools.
