Originally from northern California, Chris now resides in Nolensville with his wife, Wendy, and their two sons.

My wife, Tammy, and I have been working with Chris for over six years and the greater firm of Ronald Blue Trust since the 1990s.  Chris has been a great resource; he has been there for us through challenges.  He gets back to us quickly with responses to our unique needs.  He supplies great insight and wisdom at each meeting and on an as needed basis.  His knowledge and use of the tools and processes are excellent, ultimately bringing us greater clarity and focus.

“We want to say thank you for the many years of ups and downs Chris has stood by our side. He always has our best interest in mind, which brings us so much comfort. Now that we are in this new place with our company selling, we are so thankful to have Chris to guide us through this process. We are in uncharted waters that need experts like him. He cares beyond our finances. Every time we meet, it feels like we are in the company of good friends instead of at a money meeting... May this platform he stands on continue to be God’s hand and voice to others.”

“I have been with Ronald Blue Trust for over 20 years, and I've had the privilege of working with Chris Lim for the last seven. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is very personable and extremely competent when it comes to money management. He seems to always be available and responds quickly and thoroughly to any questions or concerns I express. I loved that as Chris got to know me, he was able to anticipate my questions and not spend time explaining things I understood. I hired Ronald Blue Trust because I wanted a company that shared my values for competence, honesty, and integrity. I also wanted to spend as little time as possible managing our investments. Working with Chris met all these objectives. I am more than happy to talk with anyone considering Chris Lim for their financial advisor.”

“I first came to Ronald Blue Trust and Chris six years ago knowing I needed to be a better steward of the money I was blessed with, but I was totally risk averse! Chris took the time and patience to educate me in the investment process and get to know me as a person so that the financial plan was developed truly for me and my risk tolerance. The plan has performed beautifully - right in line with our projections which, to me, is a true testament to Chris’s mentoring and leadership. I never would have believed it, but now I have overall confidence in the investment process!”

Our parents had a long history with Ronald Blue Trust, so when it was time for us to seek financial guidance, we also turned to them. The week before the Covid-19 virus shut down the country, we had our first meeting with Chris Lim. The next two years were tumultuous and stressful for everyone, but Chris was a calm, steady, and guiding resource during times of insanity and transition. Chris' expertise and financial prowess set the tone for a lasting business partnership and personal relationship that we will be forever grateful for - he is a blessing and a Godsend.

Chris has been such a valuable teammate for us as we’ve navigated change in our careers and our goals. On multiple occasions, he offered advice that single-handedly saved us more than his well-earned fee. Not only has Chris been an excellent advisor for the financial aspects of life, but he has also been instrumental in helping us think through difficult business and professional decisions over the past few years. He is wise beyond his years!

We are so blessed to have the expertise of Ronald Blue Trust, and specifically Chris Lim, on our team. He has helped guide and lead us with wisdom into God's will for our family. He assisted in strengthening our financial plans, developing future education goals for our children, establishing a retirement plan, and guiding our giving strategy. Most of all, he was able to give us confidence that our God-given incomes were being stewarded to the best of our abilities according to God's will.

My wife and I have been so deeply impacted by Chris. We had never had someone speak into our lives on both a spiritual and practical level when it comes to our finances. Chris goes far above and beyond in our meetings to help us feel hopeful and that we are not alone as we steward the resources that the Lord has given us. We love how every conversation is bathed in scripture and so well prepared for our specific situation. We are incredibly grateful!

My husband, Dave, and I started working with Chris and Ronald Blue Trust after my father died, leaving us a sizable inheritance. Having that much money to manage and invest was a new experience for us. We had come to know Chris at our church as a committed Christian who was knowledgeable about financial matters, and we trusted his advice. Chris recognized our desire to honor God with our finances, as well as our need to be educated. He encouraged our growth in godliness and patiently taught us during our regular meetings and whenever issues or questions arose.

We have worked with Chris for seven years and he is more than a financial advisor, he is a trusted friend. Working with Chris has helped us achieve financial goals that once seemed impossible or reachable only in the far distant future. He does an excellent job at breaking the big picture into small, manageable, steps. He’s great at both casting vision and walking you all the way there. Working with Chris helped shape our financial future in irreplaceable ways. We cannot recommend working with him enough.
