The management and leadership of Thrive Church as a Church are divided into two key areas.
The first area is the vision, direction and spiritual leadership and oversight of the Church. The Church has a board of elders that are responsible for these aspects of the Church. While the eldership board gives input, lead pastors Byron and Candice Chicken are ultimately responsible for the vision, direction and oversight of the Church, and are accountable to the leadership of the Assemblies of God in South Africa.
The second area relates to the day-to-day financial management and operational activities of the Church. Thrive Church has an advisory board that oversees the financial affairs of the Church, and the important day-to-day operational requirements of the Church. The advisory board consists of 8 people, including an independent, external advisor who is not member of the church.
The role of the management team is to ensure that the highest standards of accountability are enforced with regards to the finances and operations of the Church.
Thrive Church is a registered non-profit organisation and public benefit organisation and is audited accordingly by an independent auditor.
