God calls people to serve Him from their hearts, with their blessings, abundant or scarce. Since Thrivent is a NFP membership organization focused on helping believers live purposefully with all God has entrusted them, my degree in Biblical Studies and background in ministry helps me connect God’s prescriptions to people desiring to live out His Will with their earthly assets.
