Justin and Allison Fure Thrive Church

After years of pastors praying over Pelican Rapids specifically for a church plant, it took only 6 months for God to call Justin and Allison Fure, along with Elta (6) and Solvay (3) to plant the church in Pelican Rapids, MN. 

After being ordained by the Assemblies of God around April of 2021, Justin was in a group prayer time when God told him that he was going to lead a congregation and to tell his Lead Pastor. Once Justin was faithful and told his Lead Pastor, by the next week God gave four more pieces of the church planting puzzle. Within two weeks, Justin and Allison visited Pelican Rapids with the idea of church planting with a couple local Pelican Rapids-area families. By November 2021, Justin and Allison bought a house and moved to Pelican Rapids. They know God has been doing a spiritual awakening in the city of Pelican Rapids and are excited to be a part of God’s movement!
