Our vision is to identify, equip and develop local leaders to change their communities with the hope of Jesus.

When Jesus chose his first followers he didn’t pick the obvious contenders. Instead, he opted for the kind of ordinary men and women no one would ever have expected to lead the early church.

But they went on to achieve extraordinary things in his name.

Today we exist to enable leaders like them to change the communities they live in – however tough the task, however unlikely that leadership may seem.

Since 2001, we’ve seen the difference life-changing leadership makes in many places, from Dublin to Dushanbe.

Closer to our UK base in Oxford, our Thrive Teams live and work in three local estates mentoring and nurturing talent in young people so they can change the future – for themselves and their communities. In all of these places we work closely and collaboratively with the local church.
