Jacob and Hannah Ouellette are the founding and lead pastors of Thrive Church. They both graduated from Oral Roberts University with degrees in ministry. They had the privilege of youth pastoring for a decade at Cornerstone Church in Highland, MI. While in student ministry, they reached up to 600 teenagers weekly and trained youth pastors around the country. Hannah started a girls conference that reached more than 6,000 girls. As they began to pray about the future, they dreamed of being in a big city and impacting even more people. That city was Denver.
Since launching Thrive Church, God has grown the community into a strong church with a bold and aggressive vision. Jacob has authored three books and Hannah founded an annual women’s conference, Flourish, with the mandate to be a river of joy to the city of Denver. Their heart is to see people reach their full potential. Jacob and Hannah live in Parker and have three children.
