MAITLAND, Fla., April 4, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- This day marks the twentieth anniversary of Timothy Plan's first mutual fund (Small-Cap Value). More importantly, it marks the beginning of an era. Up until April 4, 1994, there was no pro-life, pro-family mutual fund. Moreover, there was no company pursuing biblically responsible investing.
Timothy Plan's founder and president, Art Ally, said:
"A new era arrived twenty years ago today. Not only has Timothy Plan grown from one fund to thirteen, but also there has been a flood of mutual fund companies and investment dollars from people wanting to align their investments with their values. Now, billions of dollars are being invested from people refusing to invest in companies that promote abortion, pornography, and other activities contrary to their worldviews.
"But there's always more to be done. With nearly 50% of investment dollars being held by born-again Christians -- which makes up $5.5 trillion dollars -- we expect to see rapidly expansive growth in the years to come. This may be the most powerful vehicle that brings about cultural and moral change in America, because we vote with our dollars.
"Timothy Plan continues to offer biblically responsible investing to any company or persons and is offering a free evaluation of your investments to help determine if your money is invested in companies that support abortion, pornography, or other culturally and morally destructive ways."
