Introducing Thrive

The Chaplaincy Care Ministry has joined with eight other Christian Reformed ministries to better equip and encourage congregations. Our new name is Thrive. 

While our name may have changed, we’re still as committed as ever to the work of chaplains as a healing, reconciling ministry of God, an expression and extension of God’s activity and mission in the world

Our new mandate from synod asks Thrive “to provide expertise, wisdom, and compassionate support to congregations while remaining attentive to a wide range of opportunities and challenges facing the church today." Combining the nine congregational ministries into the one Thrive agency allows us to be more accessible, more integrated, and more responsive in our engagement with Christian Reformed congregations and ministry leaders - including her 150+ chaplains.

Your prayers and financial support remain vital to our mission. As Thrive, we still depend on the generous contributions from Ministry Shares, individual gifts, and church offerings to continue making a meaningful impact. Your continued giving enables us to keep training and supporting these exceptional ministers of the Word or commissioned pastors who serve in specialized ministries beyond the walls of the church.
