Phil Wuerffel


Phil Wuerffel is the Market Director for Thrivent, the largest fraternal financial services company in the country. Phil’s focus is on helping individuals explore the Advisor Career with Thrivent and working closely with the new Financial Advisors across Western Washington as they build their practices. Prior to working the Financial Services world, Phil was a pastor for about 12 years working with churches in Texas, then Montana and then finally in Sumner, Washington.

Phil and his wife, Kelli have 3 children (ages 14, 11, and 8), so when he is not hiring and launching new advisors you are most likely to find him on the sidelines of one of the kids soccer, basketball, or volleyball games, building epic hot wheels tracks, or with his 14 year old daughter at the archery range working on their newest shared hobby. Phil and his family have been part of the church family at Calvary Community Church in Sumner for 10 years including the two years that he was on staff as a pastor there.

Phil is currently the Chapter Director for the KIROS Tacoma chapter and a member of the Board. “Confidence is found in knowing who you are, who’s you are, and who is really in control.”
