We have been blessed to have had the wealth management counsel of our advisor for the past two decades. Using his broad investment and tax expertise and teamwork with the Ronald Blue Trust financial sector specialists, he continues to exceed our expectations. He has stimulated our long-range planning and coordinated with our trust lawyer to act as the executor of our estate. We have learned to take a long-term view, while he protects our short-term options to handle the unexpected. It gives us such peace of mind to trust our investments with our advisor and Ronald Blue Trust.

His goal has been to help us focus on the things that matter most to us, and to accomplish our desire to be faithful stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

Gary and I first met our advisor in 2008 after visiting four other investment organizations. Some days later, after prayerful consideration, my husband asked me which one I felt most comfortable choosing. My answer was an unequivocal “John Yukawa.” When Gary asked why, I told him it was because “John is a godly man that I respect and would feel comfortable with if anything happened to you!” In 2011, my husband passed to Heaven and John has been one of the constants in my life that I am able to trust in widowhood. He is not only intelligent but caring and great at what he does. John is a counselor who listens well and always offers prayer -- my favorite part about who he is.

We have been working with our advisor since 2008 and each year we have a greater appreciation for the insights and wisdom he and the Ronald Blue Trust team provide. While investment advice and strategy is important, he also provides great counsel on overall financial planning, estate planning, tax, and charitable giving considerations. He consistently emphasizes the necessary biblical principles regarding our finances. He is very personable and caring, and he takes the time to answer our many questions. We could not have succeeded in progressing towards our financial goals without our advisor’s valuable guidance.

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.
