Boise, Idaho, June 27, 2023 — Inspire Advisors, a sister company of leading biblically responsible investing firm Inspire Investing, adds a $150 million advisor team in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania. Michael Smith and his team at Kingdom Focused Financial decided to join Christian RIA Inspire Advisors after nearly 20 years at their previous firm due to a growing misalignment of values and a lack of freedom to run their practice according to biblical principles.
Michael Smith had this to say about his decision to change firms, “The firm we signed on with all those years ago claimed that they operated on biblical values, but we have been seeing a shift away from the Christian faith by corporate in a number of ways. We knew we needed to make a change and stand for our values and beliefs when we were asked to take Bible verses off our website and social media pages, along with other issues. We now have the freedom to operate in a biblically responsible way and truly honor God throughout our entire practice, which includes having access to investments that best align with our faith-based clients’ values. We are able to truly focus on our client’s best interests and use biblical principles of stewardship as the foundation of our advice. Coming to Inspire has been a breath of fresh air for all of us.”
“We built Inspire Advisors to be a home for advisors willing to make bold moves in order to honor God with their whole lives and who truly want to help clients align their investments with their values,” commented Robert Netzly, CEO of Inspire. “We are thrilled to welcome Michael and his team to Inspire Advisors, and we continue to get calls from other advisors who are feeling alienated by their firm and whose clients are equally fed up.”

Their vision is to be a premier team of professional advisors that helps members of their community build strong, financially secure, and generous lives by providing guidance in balancing faith, family, and finances through sound Christian stewardship principles.
