2016 Thrive Conference

Sept. 30th & Oct. 1st


Each of us is faced with thousands of choices every day that, over time, define our thoughts, our behavior, and who we are to the world. Do we choose faith over fear, gratitude over grumbling, love over selfishness?Join us for the 2016 Thrive Conference “I Choose…” as we seek to frame the way in which the choices we make hold power and provide opportunities that influence ourselves, others, and how we see God.

A Prayer from Susie

Since the year 2000, I’ve prayed earnestly to see significant breakthroughs in the lives of women. With passion and consistency, I’ve asked God to deliver the depressed, to heal the sick, to help the rejected know that they’re actually accepted, to bring clarity to the confused, and to mobilize the army of the righteous that His Kingdom might come and will be done in and through us! And while we’ve seen these kinds of breakthroughs here and there, with all my heart, I believe a mighty wave is coming like we’ve never seen before. It’s with this heart of expectancy I look forward to this year’s Thrive event. With a powerful prayer team of intercessors in place, hearts set on God, we believe that God is about to heal our souls, make us whole, and set us free in ways we’ve not known up to this point. Will you join us with prayer, expectancy, and faith? God is on the move, and He intends to finish what He started in us! – Susie Larson
