This biblically-based financial teaching and equipping organization has a rich history with many faithful men and women who have helped produce a legacy where millions of people have benefitted.
MoneyWise Media’s roots were first planted in 1988 when Larry Burkett, co-founder of Christian Financial Concepts and Crown Financial Ministries, started a question-and-answer radio program format with co-host Steve Moore. Called “Money Matters”, the 30-minute broadcast steadily grew in popularity on more than 1,000 stations worldwide. Everyday, Larry would thoughtfully answer listener questions offering God’s wisdom.
After Larry’s passing and homegoing in 2003, Crown’s other co-founder, Howard Dayton, became the new host in 2004. He continued the caring and knowledgeable mantle that Larry had started by listening and answering listener questions on a variety of financial topics.
In 2011, Money Matters was transformed into MoneyWise by Howard’s new organization, Compass Finances God’s Way. MoneyWise faithfully continued answering listener questions, offering wisdom and guidance from God’s Word.
In 2017, Kingdom Advisors (another organization that Larry Burkett helped start in 2003) acquired the MoneyWise radio broadcast ministry. Today, under the leadership of radio host Rob West, MoneyWise is an expanding organization that continues to serve over 1 million radio and podcast listeners everyday.
To meet the growing demands of today’s culture, MoneyWise also teaches and trains people through its website, mobile app, and other resources.
