ron blue institute
The Ron Blue Institute seeks to be a thought leader with great influence committed to changing the way Christians think, act, and communicate about financial stewardship, empowering the church, and changing the world. The Ron Blue Institute delivers Biblically-based financial wisdom to the body of Christ by providing thought leadership and content through church, professional, consumer, and academic channels. At the Ron Blue Institute we see a tremendous opportunity to use Biblical financial wisdom to reveal to a skeptical and unbelieving world that God’s word is authoritative at all times for all financial planning and decision making by providing supernatural wisdom for the process, timeless and transcendent principles for the decisions, and contentment at all times under all circumstances. Our model is teaching principles and processes (how to fish), instead of prescriptions (giving them a fish). We know that the wisdom in the Bible is always right, always relevant, and never going to change.
Founded in 2000 by The Maclellan Foundation, Generous Giving's mission is to spread the biblical message of generosity in order to grow generous givers among those entrusted with much. It was launched with a vision to stir a renewed, spirit-led commitment to generosity among followers of Christ through conversation. These conversations consistently allow us and our friends to discover joy in ways we didn't expect.
Our commitment is to provide safe, solicitation-free environments. We never seek donations, permit solicitation at our events, or award grants.
