While it’s true that in today’s culture and social climate, there is some disdain for wealth due to the many examples of its misuse and how it has caused corruption and evil, we cannot turn our backs on the positive aspects of wealth creation. God wants to provide us with wealth so we can use it to help others, fund projects that further His kingdom and influence here on earth, and leave a godly legacy for generations to come. Wealth doesn’t do us any good if we don’t put it to work and help us grow in faith.

He details his own journey of faith-driven investing and entrepreneurship and how it has deepened his faith and commitment to God’s call.

Find out how investors and entrepreneurs can put charity alongside investments by having a vision bigger than creating wealth – and that is, generating a more meaningful kingdom impact.
