Messages of violence and sexuality can negatively impact families, therefore we will not invest in companies that produce or sponsor anti-family values.

Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

  • Manufacturers
  • Facilities
  • Equipment

Gambling leads individuals to become addicted to money and many families are torn apart because of that addiction, therefore we do not invest in the gambling industry.

Proverbs 15:27 He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house, but he who hates bribes will live.

8. CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

  • Shareholder respect
  • Treatment of employees

Managing and leading a public company carries a special responsibility of stewardship to many people

9. ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Taking good care of the creation God has given us is the ultimate act of stewardship.  Abusing that creation is indeed an abomination in the eyes of our Lord.
