Answering the Call: Ben Bell’s Passion for Serving Ministries
Prior to joining The Signatry, I was never in a full-time vocational ministry role, although I could consider full-time vocational ministry as “the family business.” My dad’s parents were medical missionaries in China, my dad was a pastor, one uncle was an evangelist, and another aunt and uncle were Korean missionaries. I have several cousins and second cousins who have founded and operate ministries on a full-time basis. Despite several opportunities over the years to move into a full-time vocational ministry role, usually as their COO or CFO, since that was my training and skillset, I never felt called to full-time ministry. I considered myself “in ministry,” but not in a vocational way. I knew my calling was in the secular business world as a Christian witness, and I have always thought being a Christian witness in the secular business world was and is a very noble calling. How were you introduced to The Signatry? In 2018, I got the call to full-time vocational ministry at The Signatry. It followed a long period of soul-searching, reaching out to friends, and seeking the Lord’s guidance before I had ever heard about The Signatry. This period of seeking the Lord extended through my discernment process. I was not seeking to leave the business world. In terms of analyzing the opportunity at The Signatry, I wondered whether I’d enjoy it and if I would be any good at it. It was entirely different from my daily routine, experience, and skillset, so naturally, I had questions. But then the Lord told me to join The Signatry in the clearest way possible – that is all I needed, and all my analysis stopped. I joined the team three weeks later.Read More
What is Biblically Responsible Investing?
One characteristic that sets The Signatry apart from many other foundations is our commitment to biblically responsible investing (BRI). You have most likely heard of biblically responsible investing, but what exactly is it? And how does it work? What is BRI?: Aligning finances and values Biblically responsible investing is a proactive approach that aligns investments with biblical values and principles. This alignment of faith and growth yields a present and an eternal return by investing in companies that are making a positive impact in the world. The goal is to invest in businesses that create value rather than extract value.…Read More
A Guide for Charitable Planning
Planning ahead and counting the costs of a plan are essential aspects of any project. Jesus even talked about this, in light of Christian discipleship: “For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it” (Luke 14:28). The season for year-end giving is fast approaching, and now is an excellent time to begin to plan ahead, not only for year-end giving, but for your year-round charitable giving as well! You may be accustomed to planning ahead for a business proposal but may not have thought…Read More
Maximizing the Middle
Are you a middle child? Do you have a middle child? Middle children commonly share they don’t get enough attention, or they don’t “fit” in the family. I have three kids of my own. My husband and I often say our oldest demands attention, our youngest requires attention, but our middle child needs attention. I think the same can be true with donors. Major donors warrant a considerable amount of attention and relational investment. General donors require regular mass communication. But middle donors? They need (and deserve) attention from ministries as well. And they may be the most under-served donor…Read More
Women of Legacy: Creating Vision
Florence Chadwick was the first woman who tried to swim the twenty-six miles between Catalina Island and the coast of California. It was a cold, foggy day, and she had been swimming for fifteen hours. She gave up and got in the boat, not knowing she was just half a mile from reaching the shore. At a press conference the next day, she said, “All I could see was the fog. […] I think if I could have seen the shore, I would have made it.” This is the power of vision. We need the reminder of where we are…Read More
Women of Legacy: Living Purposefully
History is replete with women who said ‘yes’ in response to God’s outrageous love and invitation to live and give generously. From Mary Magdelene, a first patron of the early church, to Lydia, an industrious entrepreneur who strategically funded early missions, women change the world with their sacrificial giving. Here are a few other women whose generosity had eternal Impact: Lady Huntingdon born into royalty and used her wealth and influence to fuel the great revivals of John Wesley and George Whitfield, hosting thousands at her estates and funding Kingdom projects. Lilias Trotter who gave up the wealthy lifestyle she was born…Read More
