Steven Holmes Participates in Christian Financial Industry Conference


CARROLLTON, GA– Steven Holmes, CFP®, CKA®, CPA of Carrollton recently returned from the Kingdom Advisors annual conference. Kingdom Advisors is a membership community for financial professionals who specialize in serving the Christian market segment. This year over 1600 conference attendees gathered at Omni ChampionsGate in Orlando, FL for industry connections, professional growth and spiritual encouragement. Over 60 industry partner firms exhibited.  Speakers included Michael Kitces, Mitch Anthony, Finny Kuruvilla, Eric Metaxas, Dr. Henry Cloud, Alistair Begg, Randy Alcorn and Jon Tyson.  

Kingdom Advisors provides advocacy, training, and community for the Christian financial industry, granting the CKA® designation, and upholding it as the standard of excellence for biblical financial advice. Certified Kingdom Advisors® are set apart as financial professionals who have been rigorously trained to integrate faith into their work at a credentialed level.    

Christian clients are discovering the worldview of their financial advisor is of critical importance. The Certified Kingdom Advisor® designation provides a principled class of Christian financial advisors who have been trained in biblical financial advice. A CKA® designee desires to assist clients in aligning their Christian values with their financial decisions.

In the ten years that Kingdom Advisors (KA) has offered the Certified Kingdom Advisor® designation, more than 1,500 financial advisors, accountants, and lawyers have enrolled in the training. In 2019, consumers searched the online Kingdom Advisors directory for professionals with the CKA® designation more than 45,000 times, a number that has increased annually.

“We’ve seen a rapidly increasing demand for professionals who specialize in the planning differentiators that exist when you apply a biblical worldview to financial decisions, whether for financial or estate planning purposes. People of all income levels are searching for the holistic view that sees their finances through the lens of 2,000+ Bible verses on money,” commented Rob West, President of Kingdom Advisors.
