We Are Church Together



The Rev. Jeff Thiemann, president & ceo​


We Are Resilient TOGETHER

Portico Benefit Services is a holistic benefits ministry serving those who serve—from rostered ministers and their families to staff at social ministry organizations. We strive to help our members grow their overall well-being.

We Are Hopeful TOGETHER

We could not have predicted this pandemic. But the virtual benefits we’ve introduced before and after its arrival, the benefit adjustments we’ve made since, our successful navigation of volatile financial markets, and the consistency of our customer service, have made a powerful difference.
During this pandemic, ELCA benefits are helping to lower stress levels, create safer access to health care, and increase financial flexibility—all to strengthen the resilience of those who serve and, by extension, those who serve this church.

God's Work. Our Hands, TOGETHER

Building Resilience in 2020
