What if I buy a ticket and then can’t attend?

If you purchase an in-person ticket and can’t attend, for whatever reason, your ticket can be transferred to a digital pass so you can attend virtually. However, the cost difference will not be refunded. Please let our team know as soon as possible so we can make that adjustment and send you the link for the digital pass. Arise Ministries does not offer refunds for childcare or for event admission.

I’m not a single mom, but I’m interested in coming with a friend. Is that okay?

Yes! We have many women who attend in support of a friend or family member and your attendance is a great way to show your support. You’ll find the speakers address topics that are relevant to all women, not just single moms. Registration is required for every woman attending.

My situation is unique. Will Thrive Gathering apply to me?

There are many kinds of single moms, each with a special story. We welcome any woman raising children alone, if even for a short time. Our session topics are varied for women of all walks of life. You’ll meet other moms dealing with many of the same issues you’re facing. 

Who will be attending?

The Thrive Gathering is designed for women raising children alone. Attendees range from divorced, never married, widowed, separated from a spouse, grandmothers raising grandchildren, etc. Regardless of how long you’ve been a single mom or the age of your children, this event is for you!

What can I expect at the in-person event?

Friday evening will kick off with a main session including worship and teaching and will conclude with a time of fun. Saturday will begin with breakfast, followed by a powerful lineup of speakers, and breakout sessions. We’ll also have panel discussions featuring men and women raised by single moms. All this plus lunch, fun activities, and awesome giveaways.

What’s the age limit for childcare?

Childcare is provided for children ages birth through 5th grade, until the rooms are full. Registration is required by the deadline. Children are not allowed in the auditorium. 

What will my children do in the childcare program?

Have fun and make new friends! The childcare workers have activities planned for the entire day, including Bible stories, crafts, games, and organized play. You can relax knowing your children are cared for by trained childcare workers who are excited about loving on your kids.

Can I be a speaker at future conferences?

It is our desire to assemble a team of speakers to inspire, educate, and encourage single mothers, and all speakers are finalized for Thrive Gathering 2021. If you’re interested in speaking at a future event, contact Arise Ministries.
