About Erland Porter

I am proud to be a key leader helping to grow the reach of Thrivent throughout Central Indiana. Working with a purpose to help others has always been a passion of mine.


I came into the financial services industry in 2017 as a Financial Professional and quickly fell in love with the ability to bring financial guidance to families of all backgrounds. Prior to Thrivent I spent my early career working in accounting for various large organizations. I chose to join the Thrivent Family after learning about the unique vision and structure of the company. I work with a wonderful team of Advisors that I have the privilege of leading.


My beautiful family and I love to travel and explore the world together. My lovely wife Lavonda and three amazing children Aubrey, Eli, and Grayson make every single day a new adventure.
