don't call it a conference.

SERIOUSLY, THRIVEanooga is Not a conference.

It's a highly-relational and truly interactive event created by youth ministers for youth ministers. We took everything we love about conferences, and added more of that. We also threw away the stuff we didn't love and added what we thought was missing. The end result was a two and half day event unlike anything else you've ever been to.
We call that result "Thriveanooga",
and we think you're going to love it!

"Everything about Thriveanooga felt exactly right. The conflab model that allowed for real expertise to be engaged and shared was perfect. Not once did I find myself being talked at or unseen. This experience was intimate and wonderful."Carol Wiget (Birmingham)

OVER THE Last 2 yearS, we had youth ministers from over 40 dioceses take part in Thriveanooga!

"I have never felt so fed and inspired and seen in my ten years of ministry. At Thriveanooga, I found companions on this road of ministry who’ve lived the same experiences as me. The solidarity and support is second to none. The opportunity to be poured into rather than being the sole person pouring into others was invaluable."Megan Moore(Dubuque)

"This is the first ministry event I’ve been to where authentic community was fostered between all the participants. Within 2 days, there was a deep sense of family and love - it was an absolute blessing."Alyssa Trutter(Austin)

WE WANT TO GIVE YOUTH WORKERS A FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE AT THRIVEANOOGA (BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT) – BUT DOING SO ISN'T CHEAP.

And let's face it: most Catholic youth ministers don't have the budget (at their parish or personally) to pay a lot of money for an event like this – even though they desperately need it.

So we rely on generous sponsors to help us bring the cost of registration down without sacrificing the quality of the experience.

We expect to have over 100 ministry leaders from across the country at Thriveanooga 2023.

      sponsorship levels

      We've got ways for organizations of all sizes to partner with us to serve (and spoil) Catholic youth ministry leaders.The levels below are just the ideas we've come up with – if you have something different in mind, we'd love to hear it!

      All sponsors get listed on our website and a pre-event social media shoutout.

      We have special sponsorship packages for dioceses – click here for details.

      *All potential team leaders must have a background in youth ministry and pass an interview screening process. The goal is to put fun, high energy, youth ministry experts in those positions.

      "As ministers, we pour into others so much and so often; and there aren't always resources and ways for our own cups to be filled. You should come to Thriveanooga to be poured into, refreshed, renewed, and restored."Natalie Pronio(Baltimore)
