THE THRIVE TOUR is an opportunity to visit four NCD churches whom God has blessed with consistent vitality and ministry growth over the past three years. We will also throw in a "Changing Course Workshop" in September for good measure. Over the next year we will visit these churches and hear their staff tell the story of what God has been doing in their congregations. It will be a chance to see churches of four different sizes in different locations to experience what God is doing for them, in them, and through them.

Each visit will last from 9:00 a.m. through lunch.
