Julie Markese is attending the conference as one of the speakers, presenting Thrive to over 170 Haitian pastors and leaders.

Thank you for your help

All 200 study books for Haitian pastors have been paid for, and we are over halfway to our goal of providing conference and meal costs. We are so thankful for the support of Thrive Network Churches and friends of the ministry who have given to bless the pastors of Haiti in such a profound way.

There is still time to get involved

Prayer Please remember to keep Pastor Jarman, Julie, and the pastors of Haiti who will attend this conference in your prayers. Ask God to speak life into the pastors and churches they represent for His glory in Haiti.

Donate money for conference meals Many pastors make incredible financial sacrifices to attend the conference, and we would love to help ease their burden by covering the cost of their meals.
