Having served as a Pastor for nearly 20 years, it became apparent to me that churches, and people of faith, need voices they can have confidence in when it comes to financial advice. Jesus talked extensively about stewardship and the wise use of resources in many of His parables. As a Pastor, people would come to me for advice in many areas of life, but the one area where I felt least equipped to help was in the area of finance. It became apparent that I could become one of those people providing needed advice to the Christian community and beyond. After much study and experience, I finally became associated with Thrivent Financial, a company I feel demonstrates its commitment to service the faith community with products and services designed to meet many financial needs. I now happily serve as advisor to people of many faiths and backgrounds, helping them achieve their financial goals.
