A Wise Financial Standard. Kingdom Advisors provides advocacy, training, and community for financial professionals who are specialists in offering biblically wise advice. We also offer distinction to our advisors by granting the Certified Kingdom Advisor® designation. We are committed to serving advisors along their unique journeys of faith/work integration.

Kingdom Advisors' roots were planted in 1997 when Larry Burkett, co-founder of Crown Financial Ministries, brought together 16 friends and fellow professionals with a commitment to biblically wise financial advice to form the Christian Financial Planning Institute (CFPI). In 2003, these men and women set out to advance their vision by creating a new organization that would take the lead in reaching out to the Christian financial professional community. Originally known as the Christian Financial Professionals Network (CFPN) under the leadership of Ron Blue, the organization began to grow and thrive, and in 2007 it was re-named Kingdom Advisors.

Today, under the leadership of Tony Stinson, CEO, and Rob West, President, Kingdom Advisors is a growing community serving the public by promoting the integration of a biblical worldview into financial practices. We offer training, community, advocacy, and distinction to financial professionals who want to go deeper with their clients - and their career. Through our Certified Kingdom Advisor® designation, we certify and principled class of biblically-wise financial advisors to a marketplace that is longing for contentment and purpose in their financial dealings.

Our ongoing desire is to serve the public by our helping our members offer biblically wise financial advice that is rooted in the firm foundation of God's word and by providing valuable fellowship for like-minded, faithful advisors. Our training is designed to equip members with timeless resources and practical tools so that Kingdom Advisors proves to be a trustworthy partner for advisors and a trusted standard within the financial services industry. As we accomplish these goals, we expect transformational results among our members and within the industry, yielding powerful change all the way from Main Street to Wall Street.

Six months later, I sent her an email to see if any new positions had become available. She emailed me back and said that although RBC didn't have any openings, she knew of a position with an organization called CFPN, headed by Ron Blue. She sent my resume, and so it began! Kingdom Advisors is God's provision for my life - for sure!

Position at Kingdom Advisors: Director of Leader Development


What major events led you to this career place? While spending most of my career in global/international banking, I never considered it possible to integrate my faith and my work. Triggered by a mission trip, I felt God calling me to full-time ministry but I struggled with how and where. Soon after I met Ron Blue and he shared the vision of Kingdom Advisors and God gave me the answer. I joined Kingdom Advisors as one the first team members. Today,  my focus is on identifying, resourcing and developing KA members who want to lead and impact Christian advisors in their community, firm or affinity.

Watching their excitement and joy as the "light bulb" turns on is an amazing experience knowing they will eternally impact so many client and other advisors with biblical financial wisdom. 

What do you like about working with our members?  Kingdom Advisors is blessed to have some of the most professional, passionate, committed and successful advisors in the industry. Many of these members go on to lead KA Study Groups and develop Christian advisor communities within their firm or business. These leaders are the backbone of Kingdom Advisors and I love seeing them lead and impact others.
