Rich Stearns shares from the front lines of global poverty and need due to his work as head of World Vision. He paints a picture of the clash of two kingdoms engaged in warfare. He challenges advisors to take a stand for God's kingdom as those who direct the management of the money that supplies the front lines of the battle. By contrasting the American worldview with the worldview of most of the rest of the world, he exposes advisors to uncomfortable questions and invites them to be a part of strategic solutions. He challenges them to learn to ask the right questions and to exert their influence on the stewardship trajectory of the American church.
Richard E. Stearns is President of World Vision. After a quarter-century business career serving as CEO of two different corporations, he joined World Vision in 1998, leading the Christian relief and development organization to unprecedented growth and calling on the American Church to respond to the global AIDS pandemic. Stearns chronicles his journey from corporate CEO to advocate for those affected by poverty and injustice in his best-selling book, The Hole in Our Gospel, published in 2009 by Thomas Nelson. Named the 2010 Christian Book of the Year by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association, The Hole in Our Gospel challenges readers in the faith community to arise out of apathy to meet the challenges of global poverty and injustice. Stearns has traveled to more than 40 of the nearly 100 countries where World Vision works. His wife, Renée, a lawyer by training, also travels and speaks on behalf of World Vision. The couple lives in the Seattle, WA area and have five children.
