Jeremy Kraus is perhaps the most passionate world changer I’ve had the opportunity get close to and learn from. His care and charisma is unparalleled and his quiet humility draws people from all walks of life into his circle with ease. It doesn’t take long to discover what his purpose is in life, to draw people closer to their god given destiny and to encourage them to live it out passionately.

Jeremy has and continues to be one of the most loyal and encouraging people in our lives. His passion to see children rescued is absolutely contagious. Every time Jeremy comes to our churches lives are changed and transformed and brought closer to the heart of God.
-Pastor Josh Wrabel
I have had the privilege of knowing Jeremy for many years and I commend him and the ministry he co-founded, Thrive, for it's integrity and standard of excellence as they raise up a new breed of abolitionists’ through the Justice School and directly save those in modern day slavery through Thrive Rescue Homes. He carries the heartbeat of God and is a true champion of justice in our generation.
