Business Advising

Our Vision

At the heart of our Business Advising is a desire to help businesses operate with a kingdom focus. We are dedicated to shaping business ideas and action from the mold of conservative Anabaptist faith and practice and producing a rich stream of common-sense business counsel. We seek to help businesses demonstrate God’s will done on earth—in business—as it is in heaven.

Our Mission

Business Advising offers quality consulting services with experienced Anabaptist businessmen and advisors. Our advisors are business veterans who partner with you to provide expert guidance and real business solutions. With a wealth of real-world experience, advisors provide business know-how and spiritual insight while keeping you on the cutting edge of business success.

Our Values

Kingdom focused: As Anabaptist advisors, we believe our faith should inform every business impulse and decision.

Brotherhood: We promote brotherhood connection and work with our clients to align with their congregations.

Servant Leadership: We aspire to lead with love and humility, serving the common good of all stakeholders.

Integrity: We are dedicated to integrity in applying Biblical business ethics.

Results: We are results-oriented and seek to conserve resources and practice faithful stewardship.

Our History

Business Advising began in 2007 and has served over 1,000 clients since then. In the beginning, our team of advisors consisted of Richard Shank, David Sauder, and David G. Martin. Today, our 18 advisors are positioned in various states and serve businesses across the United States. 

Over the years, various changes have occurred. At first our Business Advising services were marketed and targeted for problem solving and assistance for struggling businesses. While we still have a focus and heart for financially struggling businesses, the highest demand for our advising services comes from successful businesses stepping up to the next level of excellence or seeking expert counsel for challenging opportunities. Many problems can be avoided by investing in preventive planning and wise guidance.

In the past several years, we have doubled our advising services in response to rising demand. We believe that business advising is helping to transform businesses into profitable, kingdom-focused organizations.
