Worship Ministries has joined with eight other Christian Reformed ministries to better equip and encourage congregations. Our new name is Thrive (read more about the name change).
Thrive supports the local church in worship by providing leaders with networking, strengthening, and resourcing.
It's the desire of Thrive that every worshiping community in the CRCNA experiences vibrant gospel proclamation and worship that is directed to God, is biblically based and theologically Reformed, and is characterized by creativity, discernment, spiritual vitality, the faith formation of all worshipers, and a call to serve others.
Enriched by diverse ethnicities, communities, styles, and gifts, we support and strengthen biblically grounded and theologically Reformed worship in the CRCNA. Read our mandate.
We provide opportunities for CRC worship leaders, planners, musicians, and pastors to connect with each other. Join our Facebook group, sign up for our monthly newsletter, or find local groups to learn what others are doing, gather resources, and share your own ideas.
Check out our comprehensive collection of resources and topics to help you plan, lead, and reflect on worship. Or watch a webinar to learn more about various worship topics. CRCNA Worship staff and endorsed coaches are available for one-on-one training in your area. Connect with one of our staff or endorsed coaches for advice, planning ideas, and more!
