Meet The Advisor
If you are looking for a financial advisor that understands that your faith comes before your finances. That the decisions that you make financially about tithing, investing, and passing on your wealth to the next generation, should align with the Word of God and biblical principles, then you have the right advisor.
Watch this video that explains my personal philosophy when it comes to serving, and what you can expect when working with us.
As seen In:
A.B. Ridgeway is the owner and financial advisor of A.B. Ridgeway Wealth Management. With nearly a decade in the financial industry and a Masters of Business Administration in Finance, he has created a safe, non-judgmental space for Christians and people of faith to prepare for and live out their retirement.
As a married father of 4, he understands that as a Christian, leaving a legacy and successfully passing it on, is at the top of every Christian's mind.
It says in Proverbs 13:22: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children.”
But I believe that tithing, gifting, and leaving an inheritance is more than just money. Gifting includes your time, your talents, and your resources. We create plans that do more than provide the dollars and cents, we help you pass on those values, those beliefs, and the convictions you have around your faith and the Word of God.
He is also the host of "Financial Advisors Say The Darndest Things" A Christian Finance Podcast with over 89 episodes available to download that helps listeners answer important financial and spiritual questions such as:
How much should I save for retirement?
What is the best way to pay down debt?
Will I outlive my money?
Is money the root of all evil?
What does God say about investing?
When you work with A.B. Ridgeway, we don't just develop a financial plan, but an eternal plan. If you are ready to align your faith with your finances, if you are ready to invest in God and your family with a purpose. Book a free consultation call and fellowship with us.
Our Guiding Principles
How we conduct business is very important to us. Below are our guiding principles by which we handle all situations
SEEKING THE GREATEST GOOD IN ALL WE DO AND SAY
The Summum Bonum is the highest good, especially as the ultimate goal according to which values and priorities are established in an ethical system. Therefore, we seek the guidance and grace of God in everything that we do and say. Even as Christians, we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, we focus on the intent and not the outcome.
GIVING PEOPLE THE FREEDOM TO BE WHO THEY ARE
1 Samuel 16:7- For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
We encourage everyone to be open and fear not judgement for being who they want to be. God loves all of his children. We look at the heart of your Christian finances, not the outward appearances.
UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES SOMETIMES...AND THAT'S OKAY
Hebrews 4:16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Christians choose us because they have either made financial mistakes or want to avoid them. So as a Christian advisor, we keep in mind to give them grace and help them in their time of need.
Service To Humanity
I AM FREE AND BELONG TO NO ONE, YET I HAVE MADE MYSELF A SERVANT TO ALL
1 Corinthians 9:19-For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all.
As a Christian advisors, we believe in using our talents and resources to serve humanity to the best of our ability, with honesty, integrity, and respect.
We believe in traditional financial principles only when they align with the Word of God. In this video we explain our process and what you can expect working with us.
