Small Groups for Pastors, Pastoral Couples, Ministry Wives and Women in Ministry Leadership

Do you ever feel isolated or lonely? Would you like to have deeper authentic relationships with others in similar church leadership roles? Perhaps you and your spouse would like to develop some deep friendships with other pastoral couples? Do you long for a deeper connection with God in community with other leaders? One of Thrive’s small groups may be just what you are looking for.

Soul Focus

Soul Focus

Join other pastors and ministry leaders as you cultivate a
deeper walk with God, develop and practice the principles
of soul care, and build authentic community.

Each of the 4 scheduled half day retreats will include breakfast*, teaching, prayer, silence and solitude for listening, personal reflection, and small group interaction. Between scheduled retreats group members are asked to set aside time with each other to grow friendships, share their journey with God and support one another in the challenges they face. Thrive Ministries will provide material for reflection for these ‘in between’ gatherings.

2021 Dates:  March 11/ June 10/ Sept 9/ Nov 4

Thursday mornings 9am – noon.
