Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries and Dan Celia Partner with Dr. Woodrow Kroll for ‘God Is Able’ Retreat Next Week

Worship Leader Marty Goetz Joins Three-Day Event in Grapevine, Texas

PHILADELPHIA—The changing economy can be daunting for many Americans, as financial insecurity can cause anxiety and worry for young investors just starting out, for families saving for college and for soon-to-be retirees preparing for the years ahead. 

But even in times of worry, biblical stewardship authority and nationally syndicated host Dan Celia, who leads Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM, www.financialissues.org), says God is able to do immeasurably more than human minds can imagine.

Celia and FISM are partnering with well-known preacher Dr. Woodrow Kroll and recording artist Marty Goetz for a three-day retreat titled “God Is Able.”

WHO: Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries

WHAT: Financial Issues Retreat: “God Is Able”

WHERE: Gaylord Texan Resort, 1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine, Texas

WHEN: March 31-April 2, 2019

WHY: To help Christians learn to manage their money in a biblically sound manner

“When the market is volatile, we all can feel anxious and worried about our financial future,” Celia said. “But if we invest in accordance with God’s Word and focus on biblical stewardship, there doesn’t have to be any fear. When we keep our eyes on the One who provides all of our resources in the first place and allow Him to guide us in our finances—and our lives—we can’t go wrong.”

Kroll served as president and senior Bible teacher of the international radio ministry Back to the Bible for 23 years. He was heard by millions daily on more than 1,250 radio stations in the United States and almost anywhere the English language is spoken in the world. An author of more than 50 books, today he serves as president of Woodrow Kroll Ministries.

The passion of Kroll’s heart continues to be connecting people with God through His Word, which has become more challenging over the decades because of the growing plague of Bible illiteracy in America. Kroll also served as president of Davis College in Binghamton, New York, for a decade before joining Back to the Bible, based in Lincoln, Nebraska, and as chairman of the Division of Religion at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, before that. He and his wife, Linda, reside in Ashland, Nebraska. They have four married children, 16 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

At the retreat, musician Marty Goetz will also lead worship. Called a “modern-day psalmist,” Goetz is a recording artist who has performed in front of audiences worldwide. He has recorded music steadily since 1985, and lives outside Nashville with his wife, Jennifer. They have one married daughter.

A foremost trusted authority on biblically responsible investing, Dan Celia says he has seen a dramatic increase in the number of investors who want to honor God with the money entrusted to them. Biblically responsible investing, or BRI, has grown exponentially, Celia says, as Christians become more aware of how their money is being used and want to ensure that their resources, which are God’s to begin with, aren’t invested in companies that ultimately displease God.
