Our children’s program will be provided by Giant Cow Children’s Ministries. 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 (single child or family pass) to register for the GCM Kids Event. If you have already registered for the individual/couple conference category, contact or 844.624.3338 to add one child or upgrade to the family pass.

Exciting announcement: Thrive! Giant Cow Kids Event is opening ticket sales for our very first PRE-SCHOOL EVENT! That’s right, your kids ages 3-5 will be able to join their older brothers and sisters in the Giant Cow excitement, and they get to do it all in groups with other kids their own age. All we ask is that the children are potty trained. You can find out more details at the Giant Cow FAQ page.
