How should believers engage a culture sorely in need of the Gospel? Author and pastor Tyler Edwards writes, “Find a way to invest yourself, the revolution begins now, and it starts with you.” Christian investors have a unique opportunity to witness for Christ. Jesus was certainly an activist, but Christians by nature aren’t. Host Rob West welcomes economist Jerry Bowyer for a look at how that can change. Jerry Bowyer is the chief economist at Vident Financial, but he’s also the President of Bowyer Research. Bowyer Research has put together a blueprint for Christian investors to engage the culture. Then it’s your calls at 800-525-7000. 


•          Christian investors struggle with the idea of investing in companies involved in ungodly practices. Jerry talks about now being the time for Christians to get involved in “corporate activism.”

•          Jerry explains ESG strategies and talks about how these strategies can affect the economy. 

•          He then talks about what most investors are concerned with in our current investing climate. 

•          Rob asks Jerry to explain why investing (taking an active approach) is better than di-vesting. 

•          Jerry and Rob speak about the model that Jesus set for us in the area of investing and engaging the culture. They speak about who Jesus and his disciples did financial work with and whom they tended to stay away from. 

•          They also offer Biblical wisdom and advice on how to use your voice for good. They offer advice on how to influence in a Christian way.
