Discipleship Groups

These groups become the driving force behind your spiritual growth at Thrive College. You and a few other students (of the same gender), led by a Thrive

About every month, we press pause on the regular schedule for a one or two day mini-conference, called an 'Intensive' (for a reason). Each Intensive is a fast-paced download of valuable information that’s immediately applicable to your life. You'll learn life long lessons by guest speakers and pastors.

Thrive School exceeded my expectations in every way! I wasn’t ready for was the incredible relationships I built, how it prepared me to work in full time ministry, and best of all how it re-kickstarted my relationship with The Lord. Five years later, I have completed my BA in Psychology and I get the privilege of working in full time ministry at Bayside!
