The one principle that surrounds everything else is that of stewardship; that we are the managers of everything that God has given us.
— Larry Burkett

Three Nine Financial

Three Nine Financial is an investment management firm on a mission to help our clients maximize Kingdom impact through investing.  Everything we do stems from a stewardship mindset: God owns it all and we are called to manage what He's entrusted to us in a way that honors Him.

Check out our Services page to learn more about how we might be able to help.

At Three Nine Financial, we use Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) to help make sure that your portfolio is never in direct conflict with biblical values.  As part of the investment screening and research process, we weed out the companies that don’t align with scripture and seek to invest in companies that are doing well by doing good.

I’m the founder of Three Nine Financial, a firm focused on helping clients live out their faith through the management of their financial resources.  I love helping others see how the Bible can be applied in all areas of life.  This is not just a job for me; it’s a ministry and a calling.

After graduating from Northwest Missouri State University with a degree in Financial Management, I started my first job in the financial industry in August of 2008 (great timing, right?).  Since then, I've worked with many individuals and institutions, helping to manage their portfolios and provide investment advice.  While working, I continued my education, earning an MBA from University of Kansas, the Certified Kingdom Advisor designation, and the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation, the most respected and recognized investment management designation in the world. 

Several years into my financial career, my eyes were opened to the concept of Biblically Responsible Investing.  It's because of the convictions God placed on my heart regarding BRI that I felt led to start Three Nine Financial.  I'm passionate about educating others on why it's important to align their investment portfolios with biblical values, and how they can do so.   

I grew up in Blue Springs, MO – just east of Kansas City.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Shelby and we have two boys who keep us on our toes.  I love spending time with family and friends, the Royals, and anything competitive.
