A few years ago, God made it very clear to us that Thriving on Purpose’s dual mission was to Build Up the Kingdom (of God) and Tear Down Strongholds (of the Enemy).

So, our purpose everyday is to Build Up the Kingdom by providing today’s believers with…

Powerful Bible Teachings
Life-Changing Books
Personal and Spiritual Growth Resources for Kingdom Leaders
Audio and Video Courses, Podcasts, and Teachings
Empowering and Inspiring Kingdom and Patriotic Apparel

But we also make sure we Tear Down Strongholds with...

A Passion for the Truth in All Things
A Love for the Remnant of God in These Last Days
A Desire to Equip the Saints with Knowledge
A Drive to Take Back Territory from the Enemy
A Calling to Expose the Dark Schemes of the wicked

Thriving on Purpose’s unique flavour comes from years of following God through wilderness boot camps where we got to witness His faithfulness, but also His supernatural favor and guidance. In many ways, Thriving on Purpose is led by the remnant, for the remnant. It’s all about lions waking up other lions for the glory of God!




Sebastien founded Thriving on Purpose back in 2014. It wasn’t long after that Elisabeth joined her significant other to the then fledgling ministry.


Since then, through their lengthy and eventful personal and spiritual growth journey, Sebastien and Elisabeth have become an anointed and powerful ministry couple whose goal is to educate, equip, and empower the body of Christ with Kingdom knowledge, leadership, and boldness. 


By providing online broadcasts, podcasts, books, and Kingdom-themed apparel, Thriving on Purpose Ministries seeks to bring the Kingdom of God to bear down in the earth realm and to expand its influence worldwide. 


Sebastien and Elisabeth love keeping believers active, accountable, and engaged by providing targeted ‘NOW’ words and content. While they love to build up the Kingdom, they don’t shy away from tearing down strongholds by addressing current events and exposing the Enemy’s dark agendas. They have learned the art of balancing grace and truth, love and discipline, and the encouragement of the prophetic with the uncomfortable truths of watchmen.


Together, and by the grace of God, Sebastien and Elisabeth embody the meaning of  Ecclesiastes 4:9,12:


Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. [...] And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (ESV)


They live and minister from Prince Edward Island, Canada, and are raising their three children to become Kingdom expanders in their own right.






Sebastien Richard grew up in Montreal, Canada. He was brought up in a poor, broken, and unstable household. This unique seasoning provided the perfect foundation for a surrendered life when he had a powerful encounter with the Lord Jesus and became born-again at the age of nine.


At age 45, unable to resist his calling any longer, he finally embraced full-time ministry and hit the ground running for God.

A true renaissance man, Sebastien’s unique blend of depth, curiosity, spiritual gifts, personality, and experiences has moulded him into a gifted, versatile, knowledgeable, relatable, and compassionate teacher of the Word of God.

He possesses an undeniable scribe anointing and is considered by many to be a powerful prophetic teacher. He loves to write books that bring forth new concepts, or that revisit old ones by bringing forward new and/or unexplored truths. He is unafraid to tackle fringe theories, and thus he is proving to be an engaging thought-leader for this generation.





Elisabeth Richard is a certified leadership coach, and possesses a strong anointing as a Kingdompreneur. She has a heart for faith-based entrepreneurs, leaders, and believers with vision. Elisabeth’s passion is as a creative entrepreneur. She is the graphic designer behind all the apparel, digital products and mug designs in the Thriving on Purpose store. She also possesses an uncanny knowledge of marketing and uses it wisely to bless the body of Christ.


Although she’s a Bible college graduate, she became dissatisfied with many aspects of religion at a young age and always desired more from God. She finally found her place when she became acquainted with the prophetic within the Kingdom of God. Since then, she has become a powerful intercessor and has proven to be a force to be reckoned with.
