He also works strategically with business owners who are looking to sell and/or transition their business to the next generation, and teaches ministries how to work with major donors.

Bill’s personal mission is to change the way people view and practice generosity. Through innovative resources, leadership and writing – he’s helped show generous families how to grow their impact through cash and noncash giving. As part of that mission, he’s working with families to carry on a lasting legacy of true wealth.

Bill is also a published author. His recent books include a book co-authored with David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby, called Giving It All Away…And Getting It All Back Again: The Way of Living Generously (Zondervan 2017), and a book co authored with Steve and Jackie Green, This Dangerous Book: How the Bible Has Shaped our World and Why it Still Matters Today (Zondervan 2017). Other books include Stories of the Generous Life. Ordinary People. Extraordinary Generosity, and its sequel, The Generosity Bet. He co-authored Sell Well, which highlights avoiding common mistakes when selling a business, and Why the Conservative Mind Matters.

Apart from writing books, Bill is a highly sought-after conference speaker on topics relating to philanthropy and the transforming power of biblical generosity. He was named one of the Top 25 Philanthropy Speakers in the United States by Philanthropy Media.

Bill has been married to his wife Brooke for more than 30 years. They have four children, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren.

Owning and Managing a business has a God-given power and potential for blessing and ministering to those with whom we come in contact within our work. Too often Christian business people have not been affirmed in their call to business and its stewardship. We want business men and women to understand God’s redemptive work through business within this world. Through profitability, growth, and development, God blesses business leaders with the tools to be impactful and bless others. We want to help deliver the message that Christian business people are in ministry, and mobilize them for action.

What if the untapped business resources in the church globally were released for kingdom impact?

What if more Christian business people were world-leaders at tackling global evils through business?

What if every Christian business person went to work each day with Christ as his/her compass and the goal of putting skin on Jesus for every employee, vendor, and client of the business?

Imagine the potential impact Christian Business Leaders can have for good in the world by being profitable and growing their businesses, coupled with being good stewards of their resources.

Special Thanks to our Sponsors!
