Other Fortune-500 financial companies offer advice, but at Thrivent, we blend faith, finances and generosity to help our members have a healthy relationship with money—because we know that feeling like you have “enough” isn’t directly related to how much you have, it’s about how you use what you have. At Thrivent, we provide financial guidance by looking at money differently—seeing it as a tool; not a goal.

When you join our team, you’ll put your talents to work in amazing ways. You’ll create strategies that help others follow sound financial principles and connect their finances with their values.
