Modern financial advice is bad for Christians.
Work. Save. Invest. Retire.
Where is God in any of that? Where is your family?
The problem with modern financial advice is that it’s CENTERED around money, which is why the answer to every question is always more money. More work. More savings. More investing.
But there is always a cost to the endless pursuit of MORE, and that cost may be to the detriment of your family or even your soul. It may lead to the enslavement of your vibrant years to a job you hate, or poor health from stress.
At Open Door, we don’t start with the end in mind.
We start with the journey and the mission.
The journey is the entirety of your life and what you do with it. It’s not about just getting to the end, but making the most of every day and opportunity.
The mission is the reason you get up in the morning. It’s what you are uniquely qualified to do in service of God and your family. It doesn’t ignore reality, but rather reorganizes your priorities so that those things that are most important are always first.
Money then becomes the servant, rather than the master. This can lead us to some extreme conclusions:
Maybe you should start a business or change careers.
Maybe you should retire early.
Maybe you should move.
Our goal at Open Door is to help you identify and pursue your mission, and give you balance and perspective on the journey.
To do this, we had to rethink the way financial advisors should serve their clients:
- We don’t sell anything. This is so our clients don’t have to question why we are making recommendations. We are fee-only, which means the only people who pay us are our clients.
- We don’t have any investment minimums. This gives us the flexibility to serve a variety of different clients in different ways.
- We meet and conduct all business virtually. This allows us to serve anyone in the United States.
At the center of Open Door is our clients, their families and the God we serve. Ultimately, it is our mission to help you make the right financial decisions on your journey so you can grow and strengthen your family, church and community.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
