Michael is passionate about helping people live their lives on purpose. With over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, he has recognized that financial issues must be addressed holistically in order to be truly effective. As head of estate planning at the western Canadian office of a multinational financial company, he recruited and trained financial professionals. In 2000, he launched Ronald Blue & Co. Canada Inc., a firm whose mandate is to apply biblical principles in the area of stewardship. Over the next few years, Michael's team committed over 1,000 hours to designing questions that help their clients become more intentional and effective in their personal and professional lives.
In 2004, Ronald Blue & Co. Canada Inc. changed its name to Covenant Planning Group after acquiring a mutual fund dealership and the approval of an investment counsel firm. Together with Covenant Capital Management and Covenant Financial, this group has become a biblically directed Family Wealth Advisory Firm providing counsel in the areas of stewardship, transition, and succession.
A B.C. native, Michael has a Bachelor of Theology degree and is a Certified Financial Planner. He has four children between the ages of 15 and 24.
