THRiVE came into being along with the college & career ministry of the same name August 24, 2008 near the campus of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. We joined with about a hundred or so college and 20 somethings to worship Jesus Christ! We are on a mission to see Christ’s renown increase all over the world, starting in our hearts first with personal devotion and obedience to Jesus and His Word, and ending up seeing lives changed for Jesus. John the Baptist said “CHRIST must increase, I must decrease” and we try and make that part of all we do, including our music, preaching, and personal lives. We have entitled our first album REPLACE REDIRECT to describe how we want to put Jesus Christ back in His proper place which is #1 above all else in our lives. So in essence we replace the idols in our lives and redirect all the worship (giving worth to) back to Jesus and in so fulfill what we were created to do from day 1.
