There's tremendous energy and momentum to get workers on the field but a lack of intentional effort to provide spiritual, emotional, and physical support once overseas. Thus, many women ministering overseas feel alone and are barely surviving.
Thrive (originally called Women of the Harvest) was founded to help women thrive on the field, lower attrition, and expand God’s Kingdom. Since its founding in 1997, the ministry has grown tremendously. Because women ministering overseas desire spiritual mentorship, long to be known and understood, and value community, we journey with them by providing spiritual resources (Connection), transformative experiences (Retreats), and authentic one-on-one relationships (Alongside) to replenish them as they invest in Kingdom work.
