Get in touch with a Thrivent recruiter

"I had served for many years in the Marine Corps. After, what I had lost was that greater purpose—what's my bigger purpose in life? The reason I came to Thrivent was I could find that again in helping clients. It wasn't the same as being in the military, but I could still have that greater purpose in my life. And that's really why I was called here."
