Hands on Learning.

The Worship Major has a huge focus on hands-on learning. That's because the same people who actually find and hire new Worship staff at Bayside Church designed the program - so we know that experience is what really counts on a resume.

From our staff worship leaders and musicians to the programming and production teams that make services happen, your instructors and leaders are actually doing the things they teach, in real ministry, every day.

Coming to Thrive School was a big step of Faith. Little did I know how much God was going to do in my heart during this season. God has shown Himself more faithful than I could ever imagine.

This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Getting to work alongside a talented and passionate team that is always willing to help is truly a blessing. I’ve been given opportunities I had only dreamed of. I absolutely love where I am right now in life, and that’s because of Thrive School.

Thrive school has shown me the definition of grace. This is a program where it’s okay to be messy, and that through it all, you're reminded God is still standing right next to you, ready to catch you.
