We were not designed to merely survive but to THRIVE in this life. THRIVE means to grow or develop well or vigorously, to prosper, and to flourish. When we encounter Jesus, we believe it changes everything.

Have A Question?
We’ve compiled some answers to frequently asked questions to help make planning your Thrive experience easier.
What is the Thrive Youth & Young Adult Conference?
Thrive Conference, hosted by City First Church, sees over 1,000 youth and young adults gather each year. Our purpose is to equip young people, from middle school to young adults (18-30), to discover life to the fullest through Jesus Christ! We were not designed to merely survive but to THRIVE in this life. THRIVE means to grow or develop well or vigorously, to prosper, and to flourish. When we encounter Jesus, we believe it changes everything. Our prayer is that Thrive Conference is not just a weekend but the beginning of a movement in the lives of those that attend.
There’ll be intentional times of worship, powerful messages from world-renowned speakers, creative elements, special musical performances, a house party, and ridiculous amounts of fun.
If you have any additional questions or would like to talk to a member of the Conference Team about bringing a group, please call or email us. We’re here to help make sure your Thrive experience is the best it can be!
