God intends for everyone to THRIVE in their community. We see evidence of this throughout the New Testament (Matthew 10). The THRIVE Grant builds up the local church by empowering pastors to walk with their church in healthy ways.
The THRIVE Grant is a building block that Empowers churches to Sustain the covenant network of congregations in mission. We believe our clergy are gifted leaders who are called by God, however they may face some economic challenges. We believe our clergy are trying to meet those challenges in an healthy way as they endeavor to live out their Call. Therefore, the Christian Church in Ohio is using the THRIVE Grant to EMPOWER clergy, by walking with clergy in healthy and effective ways, so they may SUSTAIN their local congregations by the power of the Holy Spirit.
