ALEXANDRIA — A retired Thrivent Financial executive will speak about finances at the Unity Foundation's Faith@Work luncheon, noon-1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16, at the Broadway Ballroom.

Todd Sipe served as CEO and president of Thrivent Financial Credit Union as well as chairman, president and CEO of Thrivent Financial Bank. He also worked at U.S. Federal Credit Union and Bremer Bank.

His talk, "Financial Purpose: Following God’s Wisdom," will "contrast God’s wisdom of money with culture’s message, realizing the stark difference in the path we choose. We will introduce four biblical fundamentals and supporting principles for our money."

It will close with a framework to manage spending, savings, debt, "and above all, experience the joy of generosity."

Sipe and his wife, Barb Sipe, say their mission is to help individuals and couples become all God wants them to be by teaching biblical principles of money.


Tickets cost $15 per person and can be purchased online or at the door. All attendees must register by Friday, Dec. 9 either at or by email: The Unity Foundation says it can no longer guarantee a meal without a reservation.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
