The Thrive Conference is online gathering of youth ministry voices from around the globe for a two-hour virtual conference experience like no other.
What to Expect at this Free Online Event:
Variety
You will have the opportunity to learn from some of the most established voices in the field, and to be challenged and inspired by emerging voices as well.

We work to make sure that the voices you'll be learning from during ProjectYM events present a variety of perspectives.


Challenging Ideas
A lot of training events recycle the same ideas over and over again, or play it safe with their topics, but we ask our presenters to explore new ideas, or break open challenging concepts.

We know that there are amazing ideas out there that are transforming parishes and expanding the Kingdom of God, and we look for presenters who can share them.
Accessibility
Our events are virtual, so travel is not an issue. Our basic tickets are free so that you don't have to worry about your budget. 

Our events are a mix of practice and theory, so that everyone gets something out of them.
