Overview

Modern churches have an increasing need for well-trained, experienced production professionals - and that's what this major prepares you to be. The instructors you'll be learning from are world-class engineers, pro touring designers, and (most importantly) local church guys at heart. From weekend services, to massive special events, to national tours you’ve probably been to, these guys do it all, and you’re going to have access to their decades of experience. There’s simply no better way to build real technical skills and turn that passion for tech into a ministry career.

"When I started working in ministry at 21, I quickly found out that I wasn’t remotely prepared for what the job really required. I actually quit to join Thrive School. Best decision I’ve ever made."

Luke Elrod, Production Major, Class of 2016

There are intangible skills developed during late night load-ins, troubleshooting with minutes before doors open, and actually making it happen behind a console that you just can’t learn anywhere else. That's why the Production Major has such a focus on hands-on learning. This is how it works when you’re grinding it out on a tour, so that’s the experience we developed at Thrive School.

MEET THE TEAM

DISCIPLESHIP

Developing your skills for a life of ministry is vital - but your personal growth is what keeps our team up at night. We’re fanatically committed to seeing you develop as a Christ-follower, as an individual, as a friend, and as a leader.

FIND OUT HOW

HOW IT ALL WORKS

This is a good way to sum up the Two-Year Certificate experience: People don't become great by taking it easy. That's why you'll be challenged, and given responsibility. For a lot of students, it's refreshing to have a lot expected of them. To be shown the next level, and expected to rise to the occasion. Our team, and the peers around you, support you every step of the way.

THE BIG QUESTIONS

Most students join Thrive School intending on completing a Two-Year Certificate in their chosen Major, and that's how we've designed the program to be most effective. If you're asking yourself... How are the years different? Can I just attend for one? What happens afterward?
