Dan Celia Welcomes Mike Huckabee and George Barna to Election Day ‘Financial Issues’ Program

PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—Financial expert Dan Celia will welcome two special guests today for his Election Day “Financial Issues” program. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and social science researcher George Barna will call in to the show today between 9 and 11 a.m. ET.

Celia, a nationally syndicated television and radio host, leads Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM, www.financialissues.org). “Financial Issues” also streams on its own YouTube Channel, Financial Issues with Dan Celia, as well as airs on more than 600 radio stations—some live from 9 to 11 a.m. ET.

A former presidential hopeful himself, Mike Huckabee served as the 44th Governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007, becoming one of the longest serving Governors in his state’s history. He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on the less expensive approach of prevention rather than the costly big-government approach of intervention. His administration fought long-standing corruption in the state’s political machine, resulting in numerous indictments and convictions of powerful legislators and other elected officials. He is a New York Times-bestselling author of 12 books, including “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy.”

George Barna has filled executive roles in politics, marketing, advertising, media development, research and ministry. He founded the Barna Research Group in 1984 (now The Barna Group) and helped it become a leading marketing research firm focused on the intersection of faith and culture before selling it in 2009. Barna currently serves as the Executive Director of the American Culture and Faith Institute, which has conducted many election-related surveys this year, and is president of Metaformation, a faith development organization. He has written more than 50 books and his work is frequently cited as an authoritative source by the media. Barna has also served as a speaker at ministry conferences around the world, on the faculty at several universities and seminaries, and as a pastor who helped start several churches.

FISM also recently introduced the new Financial Issues app; learn more here. “Financial Issues” is also seen on the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) television network, reaching 45 million households, BizTV, which reaches millions more in major markets, and Dove-TV in the Pacific Northwest.

Daily, Celia addresses important financial headlines, takes calls from around the country, and focuses on current economic trends and critical mass in corporate America. He accurately predicts rises and falls in the U.S. and global economies. He also hones in on godly financial stewardship when talking to thousands who want to honor God with their finances.

A financial expert and author backed by decades of financial experience, Celia is personally in touch with thousands of people each week from across the country. He has worked for 35 years as an entrepreneur and businessman, and has developed a biblically responsible system of financial management with great success. Celia started his radio program in 1997 and has interviewed newsmakers, experts, lawmakers and presidential candidates. He speaks at conferences, town hall meetings and investment conferences around the country, is the author of six books and publishes a weekly newsletter.
