“Going to THRIVE was probably the best decision I’ve ever made. It helped me
grow in my faith in God and helped me want to be a better leader.”
“THRIVE was a chance to get away from the stress of everyday life and relax in nature with God.”
THRIVE Youth Leadership Academy is an opportunity for students to grow in discipleship and leadership. Participants will learn about themselves as followers of Christ and as leaders in the church.
The experience is hosted at Lake Louise United Methodist Camp and Retreat Center near Boyne City, MI, Sunday afternoon, July 16 through Thursday morning, July 20, 2017.
Through Bible Study, Small Groups, Prayer, Worship, Reflection and Leadership Development, participants will learn what it means to THRIVE as a young Christian and how to be a leader in The United Methodist Church.
High School youth finishing 9th, 10th and 11th grades may be nominated. Click here for the Nomination Form. Nominations are due no later than May 1, 2017.
Churches are asked to help students with the cost of $260.
