Thrive began as a CRCNA agency on July 1, 2023.

The CRCNA Office of Social Justice has joined with eight other Christian Reformed ministries to better equip and encourage congregations. We have come together under the new name of Thrive.

While our name may have changed, we’re still as committed as ever to help CRC members love our neighbors in tangible ways. We continue to provide resources to learn about the root causes of poverty, hunger, and oppression, and we empower the church to call on those in power to improve systems and enact just public policy.

We prioritize the perspectives of marginalized people most impacted by injustices, raise awareness, educate members, share resources, and prompt advocacy.

It’s how we love our neighbors. It’s how we live our faith.
