Define Your Legacy with Mission
Building a family legacy isn’t just about passing down wealth or an estate plan. It’s also about values, beliefs, and the stories you’ve lived. You’ve worked hard to build your legacy. Let us help you preserve it.
“Our clients want something more. They are facing issues of thinking through succession, how their businesses will carry on, how their children will fare, and ultimately what their legacy will be. We help families develop a plan for multi-generational legacy, but we also help them remember the stories that brought them there.”
Inheritance Isn’t a Short-Term Gift
It has always been God’s clear intent for families and their values to continue for generations. For God, legacy is a covenant, and when we establish legacy, it is our way to promise material and spiritual provision long after we’re gone.
When you partner with us, you’ll quickly see that we are driven forward by this idea of legacy. We’ll help you through all the traditional aspects of legacy planning, like family constitutions, succession, and giving plans. But we’ll also ask you about story—your history, your hopes, your failures, and your triumphs—because we’re here to help you build a legacy that endures, generation after generation.
Our experience counts,
but our values matter more.
With nearly two decades of experience in faith-based giving, our team doesn’t just understand your values.
We share them.
God calls us to legacy.
God desires generations.
God uses our story.
God values equality and responsibility.
God sees inheritance as mission.

The Seventh Generation Legacy – Can it be Yours?
When you meet with most advisors, they encourage you to think of retirement. “Plan for the long term” is the adage. But what about seven generations? In Jeremiah 35, God asks Jeremiah to bring in the Recabite family and offer them wine to drink. (For context, this is a period of time when Jeremiah questions whether any are faithful.) However, when the Recabites come in before Jeremiah, they refuse to drink the wine. Their response, in essence: “We don’t drink wine, we don’t build houses, we live in tents, and we don’t plant gardens because our forefather Jonadab son of…Read More
5 Great Books on Family Legacy
I’m often asked about the subject of Family Legacy. Some questions are resulting from the book I recently wrote with David Green, Giving it All Away and Getting it all Back Again: The Way of Living Generously.

Genesis 17.7 says, “And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring…Read More
