Off the Track
The Thrivent Racing team is committed to living generously both on and off the track. This passion is motivated by an authentic Christian faith. In addition to being a devoted family man, Michael leads a prayer group and Bible study at his church. He has embraced his Thrivent membership to make a difference, alongside his team and other Thrivent volunteers, in the communities where we race and where our fans reside. Watch the videos and read the articles below to learn more about how we're driven to thrive off the track – and how you can join us to strengthen communities across the country.
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to help build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter, in the U.S. and around the world. Through a unique partnership called Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity, Thrivent member volunteers are helping build and repair homes in partnership with low-income families. Since the partnership was formed in 2005, Thrivent and its members have committed $213 million and more than 4.4 million volunteer hours to help create 4,000 decent, affordable homes in the U.S. and abroad.
