Each block includes four 2-hour workshop-style teaching sessions and one 1-hour worship session. In total, attendees will experience 9 hours of offerings at the 2-day gathering!

What type of content and structure should I expect at the 2-day Gathering?
Sessions will be workshop-style with teachings from the speakers; exercises for self-discovery and application (including personal assessments, polls, quizzes, pauses for reflection, journaling prompts, and more); and will utilize Zoom's breakout rooms feature so you can meet with other women for smaller group connection, reflection, and discussion on a deep level. Each session will be engaging and interactive, encouraging you to reflect, discover, work through, and apply the teachings to your o
Who can attend the 2-day Gathering?
All women working cross-culturally are welcome! While Thrive is a Colorado-based ministry and our virtual events have been crafted with North American women serving overseas in mind, so much of the content is applicable to all women serving outside of their home culture. All are welcome to experience the Father’s love and care. Also, our virtual events do not count toward Thrive's policy that states you may attend a Thrive retreat every five years.

How is the 2-day Gathering different than a 5-day Gather event?
If you've attended one of Thrive's 5-day virtual Gather events, you know that they are five days, with one-hour teaching sessions offered virtually around the clock on all different topics, facilitated by many different speakers. 5-day Gather events also offer 1-on-1 appointments and daily prayer groups. Our 2-day virtual gathering events are an intensive into one topic, providing workshop-style sessions on the topic of the event. Sessions are scheduled for two hours to provide time for teachin
Will there be 1-on-1 appointments and prayer groups at the 2-day gathering?
Our 2-day Gathering event schedule does not include 1-on-1 appointments or prayer groups. However, each session will include opportunities to connect with other women in breakout groups for smaller group connection, reflection, and discussion on a deep level. We would love for you to attend our next available 5-day Gather event, where we will offer one-on-one appointments and prayer groups!
Will the sessions be recorded?
Pending internet connection and video quality, we plan to record each session for those who cannot participate live, and for you to rewatch the sessions any time after the event. Session recordings will be made available in the Hub to registered event participants within a few hours of the session. Session recordings will be available in the hub forever, and will not expire. Knowing the sessions will be recorded, those attending sessions with security concerns can turn off their video, adju
How long will the recordings be available?
