Thrive Student Ministries 


Thrive Student Ministries is about helping our students to build a relationship with Jesus that affects who they are and who they will become. In that relationship we believe that they will start to become the church in and outside of our building. The vision of Thrive Student Ministries is completely and totally infused with the vision of Village West Family Church.

Thrive is a ministry designed just for teens. It's a place where you can be yourself and become a part of a family that accepts you. It's a place for you to not just survive but THRIVE. God never meant for us to go through this life just getting by. He wants to give us life and that life in full abundance! The word of God says this:

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. (Psalm 1:1–3—NKJV)
