Our vision is to equip you for maximum ministry effectiveness and life quality as you engage with cultures around you.

Want to understand your Asian neighbours at a deeper level? Arrived in Asia recently, maybe only days ago? Discovering that people don't just talk a different language, they think and feel differently?


Struggling to see how God can use you in your new environment? Wondering how others have managed to stick around for decades? We asked the same questions and set out to find the answers.

Sharing what we learned

As we discovered that many are struggling to stay long term we decided to ask people who have managed to stick around to share at thrive:ASIA for the first time in 2014. Providing a high quality, relevant and up-to date orientation program is an essential part of retention in any place, but especially in environments you may find taxing.

thrive:ASIA's orientation training is focussed on 'least reached' nations. Places, where the Gospel has not yet taken root,  where doing ministry is harder because of aggravated circumstances. We are especially passionate about equipping workers for so called 'creative access nations'.


Our courses are chock full of topics relevant to starting out well in a new cultural context. You will learn about culture shock, national cultures and minorities, the predominant religion and history. You will also have the opportunity to discuss IT security and healthcare in your country of service. At thrive:ASIA we will look at who we are, learn how others work with national co-workers and staff and get an overview of like minded initiatives in the country.

Everyone at thrive:ASIA, including all our presenters and facilitators, have extensive experience living and working as overseas workers in the country they are discussing. Everyone at thrive:ASIA is working to see vibrant communities among the least reached. 


Please be aware that, due to the security related nature of some of the course materials and presenters, we only process requests with a valid reference quoted. 

A reference may be a former participant of a thrive:ASIA course, a staff in your sending organization or the person who pointed these courses out to you. Please include a valid email address.
