He’s a Little League/Babe Ruth girls’ softball coach and volunteers with Summer Jobs for Teens, Pine Hill Civic Association and the School Advisory Council. “I’d like to offer my perspective as a church planter and pastor of an inner city church and help make Thrivent services more accessible to people that have been unaware of these services.”
Brenda White
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
Congregation: African Methodist Episcopal Church
The Rev. Brenda D. White has been the Pastor of the Allen AME Church in Baltimore, MD since 2006. A Thrivent Member for over a decade, she seeks to learn and pass on best philanthropic practices which empower everyday people to self-advocate for the wellbeing of the communities they call home. As a regional board member, Pastor Brenda hopes to inspire others to value their ideas and implement sustainable solutions for community growth and development.
Our leaders work in the best interest of our membership––not third-party shareholders, like publicly traded companies. Clients with a benefit membership can vote in the annual election for the Thrivent Board of Directors. As the organization’s supreme governing body, the board focuses on serving the interests of the membership, both now and into the future. The board establishes and promotes Thrivent’s purpose and oversees major business decisions, and works with leadership to assess and manage risk.
