One World - Compassion International

At Thrive we believe every member of Thrive Community Church should consider going on a short-term mission trip at some point in their life.  Nothing gives you a vision and passion for the world better than experiencing it for yourself! 

However, some people will never be able to go on a mission trip. We believe child sponsorship allows people an opportunity to walk on mission with Jesus. We are called to love others. Child sponsorship through Compassion International is a tool to raise a new generation of disciples.

Please watch this video to view an example of a sponsor packet. This video explains what to expect in each sponsor packet and assist you in filling out key forms.


Thrive has formed an intentional partnership with Compassion International to sponsor children in need, and to plant churches. We are currently working with compassion and Pastor Israel Borja Valarezo to plant El Nazareno Church in Mompiche, Musisne, Ecuador. The people there are extremely poor, with an average household income of $200 per month.
