Introducing Thrive

The Office of Diversity is Now Part of Thrive

The Office of Diversity 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 identify, affirm, and support church leaders and emerging leaders in their callings and giftedness while recognizing gender and ethnic challenges in Christian leadership.

As Thrive staff we want to come alongside your church to assist, to resource, and to support. We want your church to become - or continue to be - successful, strong, and healthy. Together we are able to do God’s work in the world better than any of us could do on our own.

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.

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 support enables us to welcome and support gatherings for building relationships, vibrant worship and celebration.
