Invitation to the Thirsty Conference, passionately known as “Thirsty” was birthed through prayer in 2007. The first official conference was held in 2008 in Clermont, Florida. The purpose of Thirsty is simply to create an atmosphere through prayer, worship and the word that will build the lives of Gods people. In its inception “Thirsty” was a conference held for women and young teenage girls. Over time men have desired to attend and have been welcomed.

In 2012 “Thirsty” went International as we held our conference in the beautiful country of the Bahamas. Now in its seventh year , Thirsty continues this journey on March 19th-21st in the wonderful City of Clermont Florida where it all began. We are excited to see all that the Lord is doing through the conference and look forward to seeing the continued manifestation of the promises of God.

“Get ready for a powerful move of GOD…Get ready for the “CALL TO PRAYER!
