Prosperity or Posterity?  Which would you choose?  Most people want to prosper financially, and in their pursuit of material gain, they often sacrifice the greater goal of posterity.  Prosperity equates the accumulation of earthly goods to success.  But our posterity – the character of the descendants we leave behind – is more important in God’s economy.  Learn More About the Speaker

Speaker:  David A. Campaigne, CFP®, ChFC®, CKA® - Sr. Private Wealth Advisor at Ronald Blue Trust
