One guide, three ways forward

Our mission is to help Christians be wise with money and live generously. To do that, we promise to guide you along what we call the Wise With Money Journey. There are three things that can move you forward on this journey, and we're here to show you how to navigate each one:

  • Own your story.
  • Practice wise financial habits.
  • Give of yourself.

No matter where you are on this lifelong journey, we can guide you one step at a time so you can live a more content, confident and generous life.

A history of serving with heart

For more than a century, Thrivent has been helping Christians build solid financial futures and strengthen their communities. Today, we serve more than 2 million members nationwide. Here’s a look at some of the key moments in our history:


In the early 20th century, there was no social safety net. Back then, an accident or other misfortune could destroy a family’s welfare. By offering insurance contracts to Lutherans, we helped create mutual security where there had once been individual risk.


In 1902, Aid Association for Lutherans (AAL) was chartered as a fraternal benefit society. Lutheran Brotherhood (LB), a similar organization, formed in 1917. Both organizations brought members together to support one another under the common bond of Lutheranism.


In 2001, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans was formed through the merger of Aid Association for Lutherans and Lutheran Brotherhood. As a not-for-profit on the Fortune 500 list, Thrivent continued to support families and communities in more ways than ever.


In 2013, our members voted overwhelmingly to extend the common bond of membership beyond Lutherans, to include all Christians. This historic decision meant we would be able to help millions more people be wise with money while living generously.

"I went with Thrivent. Given its financial track record, and the recommendations that I got from people in my church, it wasn't a hard decision for me to make."*


Financial strength you can have faith in

The numbers speak for themselves. For more than 20 years, Thrivent has earned the highest possible rating from A.M. Best, an independent insurance ratings agency.1 We are again on the 2018 Fortune 500 list with $136 billion in assets under management/advisement (as of Dec. 31, 2017). Represented by total surplus, we have one of the strongest capital positions in the industry. Our strengths today will help us keep our promises tomorrow. That's why more than 2 million Thrivent members count on us to guide them on their Wise With Money Journeys.
