ORLANDO, Fla.—Alan Ross leads a group that is committed to transforming Christ-centered organizations and leaders who are dedicated to excellence, impact and success—God’s way.
With decades of experience and expertise, Ross will lead off the first session for the upcoming, exciting, free “Alignment 2020: Virtual” Conference from the National Association of Christian Financial Consultants (NACFC, www.nacfc.org).
His June 17 presentation—the first of six sessions running monthly through November—will focus on “Aligning Your Business with Godly Principles with the Help of the NACFC.”
“As financial consultants continue to innovate and rely on creativity, experience, knowledge and training, we are honored to help them further in their important work—especially during these times,” said NACFC president and co-founder Mark Minnella. “We are confident the upcoming NACFC ‘Alignment 2020: Virtual’ Conference, accessible to all consultants as a free, valuable resource, will provide the latest inspiring information that will help them navigate these new challenges.”
For the free virtual conference planned for the third Wednesday afternoon each month, NACFC has lined up a group of expert speakers who are passionate about equipping financial planners and consultants to commit to Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI)—and helping their clients do the same so they can have peace about their finances even in turbulent times.
The monthly sessions will begin on June 17 at 3 p.m. CT/4 p.m. ET. For the first one-hour online session, Ross will discuss how the conference series will help consultants utilize their practices to glorify God and experience growth, both personally and professionally.
