They offer traditional and flexible funding for:
- Refinance of existing mortgage loans

- Construction, expansion or renovation
- Purchasing equipment for worship or facility needs
- Repairs (parking lots, roofs, HVAC, etc.)
Thrivent Church Financing is a part of Thrivent Financial. Thrivent Financial creates financial strategies that help Christians be wise with money and live generously. Thrivent Financial offers a broad range of financial products and services, including life insurance, annuities and mutual funds, plus tailored guidance from financial representatives nationwide.
Thrivent is a unique kind of membership organization called a fraternal benefit society. By definition, a fraternal benefit society is a not-for-profit organization that provides insurance to its members and – this is key – has to carry out social, intellectual, educational, charitable, benevolent, moral, fraternal, patriotic or religious purposes for the benefit of its members and the public. So they don’t simply sell insurance, and they don’t simply do charitable work either. As a fraternal benefit society, they do both as they help Thrivent members on their wise with money journeys. Thrivent began as a Lutheran fund that has recently opened its programs to other denominations and is especially welcoming the Episcopal Church as our denominations have a concordat that makes us close partners.

In addition to financing, Thrivent Financial offers programs that support the values of faith, family and service, as well as opportunities for members to support organizations and causes they care about.
