Thrive! 2017 Children's Program


As for the past couple of years, our children's program will be provided by Giant Cow Children's Ministries. GCM has received glowing reviews in our conference evaluations, and we are excited to have them return. 

Giant Cow events feature high-energy drama, exciting music, really fun activities, memorization of God’s Word and positive mentoring by dynamic young people. (Volunteers are accepted beginning at age 13 and up.)  
  • Separate registration and payment is required,   
  • Contact Giant Cow to find out about receiving FREE REGISTRATION in exchange for your older child volunteering with the Giant Cow team (volunteer must be at least 16-year-old and volunteer for the whole weekend).
  • Children need to be registered for the Thrive! Conference (family pass) to register for the children's program. If you have already registered for the individual/couple conference category, contact or 844.624.3338 to upgrade to the family pass.

Deadline is May 15, unless it fills up before then.

Families have the option of registering for 2 days or 3 days of the children's program.

Ages: 6 - 12 years old at the time of the conference
