Explore the ministry opportunities for your Student at First Alliance

Thrive Student Ministry

Thrive Student Ministry exists to empower the next generation of students to realize the dreams God has given them for their lives by pointing them to Jesus.

Our goal is to see every 6th-12th grader connected in a personal relationship with Jesus and thriving within the local church.

We meet every Wednesday night at First Alliance Church from 7:00pm – 8:30pm in our upstairs youth room.

Your Students First Visit

Here’s what to expect when visiting Thrive Student Ministry for the first time:

First, head upstairs to our student ministry room located in the North-ed building at First Alliance. When your student arrives, they will be greeted by one of our “Safe Place” trained volunteers. During our Wednesday gathering, we will play games, sing songs, and hear a student-specific message from our Student Ministry Director.

More than anything, we want to connect your student with other students in our city that are passionate about following Jesus.

We ask that our parents fill out a medical release form prior to your student attending so there is a record of allergies, ect.
