“They quickly put our minds at ease as they helped us see how our assets would carry us into the future, how we could plan better for the future.”

We believe biblical principles are the best guide for making wise financial decisions.
At Blue Trust the foundation of our wisdom comes from Scripture. We seek God’s guidance for our lives as well as our clients’ finances. The Bible shown here is Ron Blue’s Bible from the late 1970s when he started his financial planning firm. In February 1977, as he was seeking God’s wisdom for his life, he read Philippians 3:7-11 and made a list in the margins of “things” he was willing to give up in order to follow God’s call.
In 1979, on a trip to Africa, world-renowned author and scholar Howard Hendricks challenged Ron Blue to use his CPA background to help Christians be better stewards of the resources God had entrusted to them. This challenge plus encouragement from other individuals gave Ron the vision and courage to start his firm, which was originally known as Christian Financial Management.
Ron Blue wrote Master Your Money in 1986 and it has become a cornerstone of Blue Trust’s financial counsel. It lays out the fundamentals of biblical financial management. Russ Crosson, Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Mission Officer of Blue Trust, wrote the book, Your Life…Well Spent, which shares the importance of finding balance in your life, investing in the next generation, and leaving a godly legacy.
