Introducing Thrive

Pastor Church Resources (PCR) is Now Part of Thrive

PCR 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 serve pastors, churches, and classes as they seek to promote healthy relationships, encourage one another in ministry, and discern next steps in seasons of growth, transition, or challenge.

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.

“The work of supporting pastors and churches in times of challenge, transition, and growth is one of the many ways that Thrive serves the congregations of the CRC. We bring expertise in conflict management, transitional ministry, and leadership development as well as faith formation, worship, justice, and mercy– all so that our pastors and congregations flourish.”  - Rev. Dave Den Haan (Thrive's ministry consultant)

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 do God’s work in the world better than any of us could do on our own.
