Meet Thrive’s Newest Staff Member…Dave Shephard

I’m so excited to introduce you to Thrive’s newest staff member, Dave Shephard!shephards

Let me back up! Over the course of the last month or so, we’ve been interviewing Dave for a role on the Thrive staff team. The whole process has been an ONLY GOD type thing and last week we finished interviews with our Elders/Financial team and our Staff.

I offered David the position and he accepted!!!! So, Dave is Thrive’s new Creative Director. Dave will work closely with Matt Moore and the Thrive Kidz and One Youth teams to create irresistible environments at Thrive. Dave has offered to raise his salary for his first year or so on staff and we are so thankful for that. Please be praying for his fundraising efforts! If you would like to help, head here.

He and his wife Stephanie have two little boys and a baby girl due in December! They live in Shepherd and are graduates of CMU! Dave is incredibly talented and we’re so excited to have him on the team. Check out his blog here.

Would you please take a moment and welcome Dave to the team? Either via Facebook or email (

If you’re at Thrive this Sunday, you will meet the whole Shephard family!!
