Becoming Kingdom Investors

From Leadership Lecture Series

For over 40 years, Alan and his team at Barnhart Crane & Rigging have been providing innovative solutions to the complex lifting and transportation challenges faced by heavy industry – from power generation to petrochemical to renewable energy. Today, there are over 20 branches across the U.S. creating the strongest network of rigging experts and equipment in the country. Alan views his business and his leadership role as a stewardship opportunity. When asked how he sees his firm, Alan noted, “As I studied scripture, I realized everything I have has come from God and belongs to God. My role is not as an owner with rights, my role is as a steward. Barnhart Crane and Rigging exists to glorify God.” The company purpose statement is : "to glorify God by providing an opportunity for His people to use their skills and gifts in His service through constructive work, personal witness and ministry funding" and in 2007, Alan Barnhart, his brother, and their families decided to give 99% of the business to charity. In this video, learn why Alan saw giving away tens of millions of dollars as a perfectly logical thing to do.
