Going Deeper and Finding Joy

Jeff Thomas' Generosity Story

By NCF Staff  |  August 11, 2015


NCF giver Jeff Thomas loves his job as a professional advisor. But he wasn’t always this joyful.

“During my first 10 years as an advisor, I had my head down, building financial plans and investment strategies for clients,” says Jeff.“But then I woke up and realized that I did not want my epitaph to be, ‘Here lies Jeff, he made rich people richer.’”

Jeff was inspired to go deeper with his clients to help them think beyond themselves and discover the joy of giving.

“My calling is to pour into the lives of high-capacity givers to help them discern their God-given calling and to give them the oxygen to live it out. My primary delivery system for doing this is my financial advisory firm,” says Jeff. “My personal giving refects this calling, too. I give to organizations that have helped train me to be a better steward of God’s gifts to me. I understand how important it is to encourage the encourager.”
