I believe the key to living a fulfilling and successful life is living it generously. God’s plan for our finances includes honoring Him in the area of financial stewardship and Thrivent’s unique approach to helping its members get this right is transformational.

Being a part of the Thrivent Member Network is directly aligned with my own personal values. I believe in & value community & generosity, above all else, & that is exactly what Thrivent Financial stands for, & practices, every day. For me, living a life of meaning is directly aligned with being of service & practicing gratitude, generosity, & love. THIS is what Thrivent does & the positive ripple effect on our communities is massive! I am thrilled for the opportunity to serve & help the Thrivent team make an even greater impact in our communities, all while living in even greater alignment with my own personal values.
Our leaders work in the best interest of our membership––not third-party shareholders, like publicly traded companies. Clients with a benefit membership can vote in the annual election for the Thrivent Board of Directors. As the organization’s supreme governing body, the board focuses on serving the interests of the membership, both now and into the future. The board establishes and promotes Thrivent’s purpose and oversees major business decisions, and works with leadership to assess and manage risk.
