Faith-Based Mutual Fund with Jason Myhre

Most Christians will tell you they don’t want to invest in companies that profit from things like tobacco, alcohol, and abortion, and many take great pains to avoid them. But is that all there is to faith-based investing? Avoiding “sin stocks” is an honorable way to align our investments with God’s will but it’s only part of the equation. Today on MoneyWise, Rob West talks with Jason Myhre of Eventide to get the rest of the story.

•          If you want to invest in alignment with God’s vision you need a more complete theology of business. You need to understand how God means business to create blessing in the world—really, how business is meant to help in God’s plan to restore the world. This idea, that business practiced well is meant to help God restore the world, as a revelation; and to this day it remains the bedrock of our investing philosophy.

•          Eventide had our eyes opened to the power of business to create value and blessing for the world. Before, we had only half the picture, the negative side—avoiding companies we felt dishonored God. But then we began to develop the other half of the picture, the positive side—seeking out and embracing companies—we felt were well-aligned with God’s heart and design for business. 

•          We describe our approach as “investing that makes the world rejoice.” Our larger vision is to press on and find companies that are creating significant blessing in the world.
