Regional leadership

The Thrivent Member Network regional board is made up of Thrivent clients with membership. The board provides leadership and strategic insights to help carry out Thrivent's mission on a local level. Clients with membership can have a voice by voting in the elections for the Thrivent Member Network board.
Karen Fabean
Board Chair
Hometown: Fort Mill, SC
Congregation: Messiah Lutheran Church
Throughout her career at Dunn Associates, Fabean has worked to engage voters in the political process. Her leadership on the board will work to engage more members in the organization's mission to be wise with money and live generously. "The Thrivent Member Network recognizes that our members represent diverse people who can make a meaningful difference locally. Never underestimate the power of the individual at the grassroots level."

Rev. Paul Martin Hoyer
Hometown: Lake Mary, FL
Congregation: Holy Cross Lutheran Church
Hoyer purchased his first insurance contract nearly 40 years ago, right after getting married. Since then, the executive pastor for the Central Florida Cross Network has only grown in his commitment to and support of The Thrivent Way. "I hope that by being on the board, I can help keep the decisions made relevant to the people in our communities."

Ausma Mursch
Hometown: Venice, FL
Congregation: Faith Lutheran Church
Mursch is a retired educator and college administrator and continues to be actively engaged as a board member with a number of social ministry agencies. She is passionate about her volunteer work with an orphanage in Riga, Latvia. Mursch has been a Thrivent member for more than 40 years. "My hope is that serving on the board will give me the opportunity to help enhance Thrivent's outreach to church and community in new and exciting ways."

Kimberly Spears
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
Congregation: Victory Church
Spears is excited about the opportunity to activate more local community engagement throughout the region and to deepen connections through Christian outreach. As Senior Manager of the Chief Marketing Officer Program at Deloitte, she says: "I hope to provide a different perspective based on my experiences to help advise and grow the organization."

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.
