I met Don Christensen, and from day one something clicked. That relationship just grew and he became way more than a financial advisor. He's been there for everything in my life. He's been a mentor. He introduced me to the importance of giving. He started talking about the importance of not just giving, but also going in person, whatever it is that you're doing, and going in person and experiencing the whole thing and having an impact on people.

We define the term “Christian Financial Advisor” to be someone who has received special training (such as that received in the Certified Kingdom Advisors (CKA®) Educational Program) in applying biblical principles to financial technical expertise. Because these financial principles come from both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, a book whose timeless wisdom has been applied to business and financial matters for thousands of years, we refer to these principles as “Biblical Financial Principles,” and the advisors that have been trained in them as “Christian Financial Advisors.” Across the globe, people with different faiths, beliefs, and backgrounds use these principles in the management of their wealth.
