Christ followers have become known for what we are against - no alcohol, tobacco, adult entertainment, gambling, etc. While acknowledging the good negative screen funds that exist, we desire for our movement to be more known for what we are FOR in how we place our investment capital—things like human flourishing, job creation, redemptive businesses that restore the world to God’s original design in the garden, etc.
We believe that while engagement with companies is important, we should be wary of having our investment dollars supporting or creating products that erode family or Biblical values. This is not a movement that is about delineating what Christ followers should or should not invest in. Some investments may be clear to avoid (those that produce and distribute pornography as a material part of their business model might be an example), and others may be less clear (those that make some food products that our doctors would tell us to avoid).
