Americans Search for Financial Safety Amidst Reeling Market

Financial Expert Dan Celia Says Now is the Time to Commit to Biblical Stewardship

PHILADELPHIA—For many, the start of 2016 means a commitment to be physically fit. But many others have a goal to be “fiscally fit” as well. In fact, January is National Financial Wellness Month—the perfect time, says financial expert and national talk show host Dan Celia of Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM,, to start fresh in being biblically responsible with our money.

“I hear from concerned people around the country that they want to become knowledgeable about finances and please God with their spending, saving and investing,” Celia said. “The start of a new year is the perfect time to improve our relationship with money and how we relate to the Lord in this area of our lives. I encourage everyone to begin the journey to financial freedom that is rooted in the Bible.”

The financial expert offers four guidelines for starting down the road to biblical stewardship in 2016:

  1. Remember that God owns everything, not just what we give to Him.
  2. Learn to be a good steward of God’s blessings.
  3. Become comfortable and knowledgeable in your investment strategies and financial decisions.
  4. Give freely to His work.
Celia shares stewardship principles and financial advice on his daily, live radio and TV program, “Financial Issues Live,” where he takes calls from around the country, answering questions about investing, estate planning, giving, saving and stewarding finances in wise and godly ways.

“Financial Issues” has grown on both the radio and television sides and now airs on more than 350 radio markets across the country. The program is also seen on the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) television network, reaching 45 million households, and BizTV, which reaches millions more in major markets, along with many other independent radio and television stations.

Celia also often educates listeners and viewers about his stock “sell” list, encouraging those who strive to be biblically responsible with their investing to sell certain stocks based on the company’s involvement in moral or biblical issues, such as having stake in Planned Parenthood funding, pornography or other non-biblical areas that should be concerning to Christians.

Throughout the year, Celia also hosts popular and well-attended townhall gatherings at churches and other venues, where people can spend an evening with him to learn more about how to biblical manage their money and investments.

A financial expert and author backed by decades of financial experience, Celia is personally in touch with thousands of people each week from across the country. He has worked for 35 years as an entrepreneur and businessman, and has developed a biblically responsible system of financial management with great success. Celia started his radio program in 1997 and has interviewed newsmakers, experts, congressmen, senators and presidential candidates. He is a board member for American Family Association, speaks at conferences, townhall meetings and investment conferences around the country, is the author of six books and publishes a weekly newsletter.
