MAKE YOUR PASSION YOUR CAREER
We think preparing you for effective ministry and preparing you to stand out on a resume go hand-in-hand. Here at Thrive School, you'll get focused career training while working towards your college degree, and doing real ministry as a part of the high-impact teams at Bayside Church, in Northern California.
EARN YOUR TWO YEAR MINISTRY CERTIFICATE WITH ANY MAJOR:
To work in a growing church, it takes a lot more than onstage skill. You have to have a solid theological foundation for worship, be a capable music director, be able to build a team, train volunteers, navigate a church staff, and so much more. That’s what we’re going to train you to do.
Leadership at its core is a decision to reject current reality and fight for change. Pastoral Leadership is learning to bring about that change by caring for people in the way Jesus modeled for us. Effecting change is never easy, but in this major, you'll learn how to lead yourself, lead others, and create systems to support change.
