Mobilizing women to be all God created them to be.

Virtual Community for Busy Women


We have created a flexible, “outside of the box” way to bring ongoing community and discipleship for Flourish women through Flourish Connect Groups! We know lives and schedules can get busy, so we have designed an intentional space for community and relationships to grow in the setting of a virtual group messaging app (GroupMe app).  That means we can still build community around the craziness of our lives from the comfort of our pajamas, on a lunch break, after the kids go to bed...participate whenever it is most convenient for you! Connect Groups do not require meeting in person.

The goal is that we take what we hear at the monthly gathering and take it a step deeper.

Make it personal. Share what God spoke to you personally, connect with other women, ask questions, grow in your faith, and request prayer. Flourish Connect Leaders will lead discussions that build on what God is doing at the monthly gatherings. Connect groups weave together communities of women that can be real together, encourage each other, and ensure no one walks through life's struggles and triumphs alone.


How It Works


Take a look at our Connect Group leaders listed below and choose a group, or select "Place Me in a Group" to be prayerfully placed into any connect group.

Once your Connect Leader adds you to their GroupMe Connect Group, you will be automatically alerted via text. Download the GroupMe app and start connecting!


When do Flourish Connect groups meet?

Flourish Connect Leaders will post in their GroupMe groups a few times throughout the month. There will not be set meeting times - work it around your schedule.  You can expect to hear from a Connect Leader within 5 days of signing up for a Connect Group.


Connect Groups Sign Ups are Closed

We're sorry, we are no longer adding new members to Flourish Connect Groups at this time.  We will be launching Connect Groups again in August for the Flourish year (August - May), and look forward to getting you plugged in!

Age: 25-30

Rare native here! By day I am a professional vampire (aka Lab Tech). In my free time, I’m a woman on mission to reach our generation of youth and be surrounded in a tribe of women. I happen to be a crazy fur mom, whose love for plant based, at-home meals has expanded. Put a kitchen tool in my hand and I will be living serene. 

Take away fact: the only instruments I am good at are those of the kitchen. I don’t have a single musically inclined bone in my body. Thus, I will enjoy the gift of those who do, while I cook away.

Age: 40-45

I moved to Colorado with my husband and two sons, ages 16 &18, ten years ago from Indiana. We enjoy hiking, camping, and Jeep trailing as a family. When not spending time as a family, I enjoy spending my alone time scrapbooking. Last year, I adjusted from being a stay at home sports mom to being back in the workforce, where I am currently the lead trainer at FIT36 in Parker. I have a heart to encourage others, which has inspired me to take my love for God and my love of fitness to start a fitness ministry where I can use fitness as a tool to share the gospel message.

I moved to Colorado nearly 13 years ago after meeting my husband in college, on the soccer field where we both played.  I have two children, ages 3 and 6,  and work full time in the finance industry.  I LOVE to have fun and am passionate about sunshine, Crystal Light Energy Drinks and Jesus.

Age: 30-35

I moved to Colorado when I was 6 years old & haven’t left (I even went to college here!). I’ve been married for five years & have two kids, ages 3 and almost 1. A year ago, I made the transition from a full time working mama to a stay at home mama. I truly feel like being a mom to my kids is God’s greatest calling for me. Some of my favorite things include being at the gym with my girlfriends, spending time with my family and baking!

Age: 65-70

I was born and raised in Northern Ireland as one of 16 children and came to California in the late 70's to start a new life and build a family. Work and family brought me to Colorado 2 years ago. I work full time as an office manager in a software engineering firm and have 2 grown sons and 4 grandchildren. I love to travel, visiting my son in Florida often and ministering to women. 



Age: 25-30

I'm a Colorado native and I grew up camping and 4-wheeling and love the outdoors. I've been married for 3 years and have a 6 month old baby; being a wife and a mom are my favorite hobbies.



Age: 30-35

I was a born and raised Colorado tomboy. I traveled around the world as a photographer/missionary for 3 years. In 2010 I started my own wedding/portraits photography company. My greatest love is to help women overcome life’s hardships and celebrate life through photo therapy. In my spare time you’ll find me working out, spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, and watching movies.
