Be a part of our expansion initiative to MAKE ROOM for the future of our Valley family!

Helping vulnerable children and families thrive in the Des Moines community.

Help support children and families in the Des Moines area.

Thrive Ministries is a FAM, or Family Advocacy Ministry, mobilizing the church to care for vulnerable children, adoptive and foster families, and struggling families.

Thrive Ministries achieves this in several practical ways:

  • Praying diligently and consistently
  • Raising awareness around the needs of vulnerable children
  • Recruiting & equipping families to care for at-risk kids 
  • Serving families in crisis through Care Communities
  • Advocating on behalf of families and vulnerable children
  • Ministering to families to help meet emotional and spiritual needs
