Pastors

  • bobby maynard, senior pastor

    Pastor Bobby is a West Virginia native who put down roots in Florida after his college years and received Christ into his life at the age of 25. He has been in full-time ministry to his Lord and Savior since 1988. Bobby received his education from Atlantic Baptist College and Seminary in 1997 and has been a Senior Pastor since the year 2000. 


    Pastor Bobby started Shades of Grace Citywide Church in June of 2002. After 10 years of inner city ministry and growth, he was approached by a sister church in Winter Haven,  Heartland Community Church, to double as a mission center in Eloise and an additional campus of Heartland. The Lord blessed the work of God's people,  and the Eloise campus went to two services in three years. As Heartland began her work towards building a single, unified campus in downtown Winter Haven, they commissioned Pastor Bobby and the Eloise campus as an independent work in 2015, which was named Thrive Church Ministries.


    Thrive Church inherited the campus on Carl Floyd Road as a second campus debt free. Eventually, Thrive Church moved into the Carl Floyd Campus full-time. Today, Thrive is a young church consisting of mission-minded people. 


    Bobby has been married to his wife and best friend, Yvette, for 30 years as of May 2016. Together, they have three grown children: Joshua, Natalie, and Noah. 

  • joshua maynard, associate & student pastor

    Pastor Joshua was born and raised in Winter Haven, Florida. He received his education from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. It wasn't until after his college years that Joshua discovered a passion and desire for studying and teaching God's Word. He began by volunteering with middle school and high school students in 2015 and never left. Joshua was ordained into the ministry in August of 2017 by his pastor and the elders of Thrive Church.


    Thrive Church has been his home church since its commissioning, and he has been blessed to serve alongside his family, both physical and spiritual, for so many years. He has been  married to his wife, Jessie, since May 2012, and  they are waiting on God for children.
