Worship Leader

Posted by: Mark Hale

Posted date: Mar-22-2021

Location: Grand Forks, North Dakota


Thrive Community Church is located in Grand Forks, North Dakota, which is an hour north of Fargo.  We are a 14-year-old Nazarene church full of life!  Thrive meets in a furniture store that we renovated eight years ago. Our lease is up in less than four years. In about three years we will be purchasing our own facility, doing the buildout, and calling it home.  We are hoping to purchase a building like Macy's, Sears, etc.  Grand Forks is a university town with 13,500 college students attending the University of North Dakota.  We also are home to the Grand Forks Airforce Base which is located about 20 minutes from our church.

Thrive is built on the premise that we are all broken and need God.  We are not a country club where one needs to have it all together, dress the part, and speak the churchy language.  As you can guess, we focus less on formality and more on relationships!


Our church is made up mostly of young families, as the next generation is our focus.  We also have a second campus in Grafton, North Dakota.


The person we are praying God brings us is an individual who is fired up about Jesus and serving His people. As Thrive’s worship leader, having the ability to help lead our people to the very heart of the God is essential.  This catalytic leader also has to be able to develop the team. 


As far as music, we are a contemporary church.  A guitar driven worship style fits us well, but we aren't married to that. Our worship leader will lead at our Grand Forks main campus on Sunday mornings, and at our Grafton Campus on Sunday nights. Part of this person’s ministry will be bringing coordination and leadership to our Grafton Campus.


Thrive was going gangbusters prior to the pandemic.  We are beginning to feel God building new momentum as we seek to reach the lost for Him. Like most churches, we are ready to take back territory the enemy thinks is his.
