Half-Million-Dollar Studio Will Help More of the Faithful Learn How to Honor God with Their Money
PHILADELPHIA—For more than three decades, nationally syndicated host and biblical investing authority Dan Celia has helped people of faith honor God with their investments and be free from a fear of money.
Now, Celia and Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM, www.FinancialIssues.org) are planning to construct a new television studio to reach even more for the glory of God and His plans for His people.
“God has raised up opportunities beyond any of our expectations,” Celia said. “We are now producing original video content for another soon-to-be-announced project. We specifically hope this new outreach will resonate with young people while appealing to all other ages as well. Our leading desire is to use technology and other resources wisely so our programming will be pleasing to God.”
Celia noted that the studio project estimates will top $550,000, which will add 3,200 square feet to the existing space, purchase new equipment, upgrade to the sets and control room, and consider interior construction, heating, air conditioning, plumbing and new lighting.
“We are committed to not take on debt to do this,” Celia added. “If we lack the necessary funds to continue the work God raised up for us to do, we will pause until He does provide. I continue to be amazed at what God is doing through our ministry. These are things that I never expected or desired or had any illusions of building. I am simply following His lead.”
The ministry has received thousands of testimonies about its work, including the following:
- “We appreciate that you are fighting the culture war at the corporate bottom line. I believe God has raised up men like you to help us use what God has given us in a manner that is pleasing to Him.”—Dave and Linda, Texas
- “In the last four years we have slept better knowing we are honoring the Lord. Thank you that you have been the vessel to completely transform our lives. The body of Christ needs your guidance to make us into who He wants us to be. Thanks again for everything.”—Stephen and Anne, Texas
- “We listened for several months and researched your writings and work and the work of FISM. The Lord has gifted the ministry and empowered Dan to do all the heavy lifting through his work. We only need to be patient and mindful of God’s message. For whatever reason God brought Financial Issues to us the day I plugged in that radio, and we thank Him for that.”—Tracy, North Dakota
Celia discusses global and economic headlines on his daily, three-hour “Financial Issues” program, heard on more than 650 radio stations nationwide and reaching millions of households through several TV networks.
