Let's put your plans in motion
Want to pursue lifelong dreams while supporting people and causes you care about? With our guidance, you can get there.
We are John and Christine Messerschmidt, a husband/wife team that has worked together at Thrivent since 2010. We provide personalized financial guidance to people at all stages of life. At Thrivent, we view money not as a goal, but as a tool - one that can afford you a life rich in meaning and gratitude. We are here to help you do just that.
John earned a BA in Theology and Humanities from Valparaiso University, a Master of Arts in Theology from Trinity Lutheran Seminary and an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. Prior to joining Thrivent, he worked as a consultant in customer sales and service.
Christine earned a BA in Political Science from DePauw University and an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. Prior to joining Thrivent, she was a private banker and a commercial lender.
We are both licensed financial professionals having passed the FINRA Series 7 (General Securities) and FINRA Series 66 (Uniform Combined State Law) exams. We each have Life and Health Insurance license in the state of Illinois. John is also licensed in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
We have been married over 25 years and live in the Barrington area. We have three children (see photo) and are active members of our church.
