Thrive Questions?

Welcome, A Life Overseas Reader! We are Thrive Ministry. We host international retreats all over the world for Global Women.

Sometimes the best encouragement is simply found in being together.

Retreats are a four day gift to an oasis of refreshment. Many of our attendees work in remote locations where running water and electricity are not available or dependable. By hosting our retreats at a conference center or hotel, we provide an environment for physical, spiritual, and emotional renewal.

Why only North American Women?

Prayer and Worship

A safe place to pray and worship freely with other Global Women. Sometimes it is not easy for Global Women to worship publicly while serving overseas. At our retreats, Global Women can freely pray and worship with other Global Women.

A safe place to connect and share with other Global Women who understand the demanding work of living overseas. Meaningful connections that bring sense of belonging and knowledge that they are not alone in the field.

Professional Counselors

A safe place where you can process with professional counselors that will listen and pray with you. We understand the challenges of being a mother, a wife or a single person on the field. Many Global Women have benefited from counseling over the years.
