"There are a lot of wonderful things about TR, but I am especially grateful for Neil & Casey!
"[Neil] spoke words that both encouraged and challenged me.... He called out and affirmed my truest identity & celebrated the way God has worked in my life. I knew that Neil was someone I wanted to learn from.... His words continue to stick with me and shape future decisions.... This was a healing year for me and I attribute a lot of it to Neil's character and leadership."
"I am thankful for Casey's hospitality, her sacrifice & surrender, her discernment and her creativity.... She is full of the Spirit and Truth. I'm thankful for her presence and investment in us...."
Kathryn Jordan | Class of 2020
"God used the program (through Neil, professors, job placements, housing, etc.) to shine a light.... We came face to face with ourselves... as our God was inviting us into the things He wanted to point out in our hearts...."
"For me it was healing. It was deepening.... It was slowing down, stopping, and listening all the more intently.... I learned so much about our Lord through this experience...."
Jimmy Higginson | Class of 2020
"God was so present in the entire mission of TR. The leaders always put prayer and the Lord first!"
"This program is better than I could have ever expected and can change the life of so many young leaders for the Kingdom of God!"
Beverly Gard | Class of 2020
"I LOVED living in Lonsdale. An experience I will definitely treasure forever."
"...Thrive has given me a foundation to build on.... I learned so much about myself.... I am a much better rounded and grounded person because of the conversations, lessons, knowledge, experiences, failures, and everything in between of this past year."
"HIGHLY RECOMMEND Thrive to anyone aspiring to be in ministry."
