“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”
Deuteronomy 8:18, NKJV
What We Do
How We Got Here
Our founder, Billy Epperhart, had to learn that lesson the hard way. As a successful pastor, businessman, and real estate investor, Billy was able to retire at a pretty young age. He spent a few years enjoying the fruit of his retirement and was confident that he would never speak or work again.
However, God (and his wife, Becky) had other plans.
“Billy, if you don’t get off the couch I’m going to kill you!” Becky lovingly threatened a few years into his retirement. We’re paraphrasing, but the fact of the matter is that her encouragement worked. The couple prayed about what they should do with the rest of their career, and WealthBuilders and Tricord Global were born.
We believe that, as Christians, we are called to partner with God to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. A major way we can do that is through our work and financial resources. Tricord Global, the missional arm of our nonprofit, is how we practically do that. Tricord provides microfinance loans and business education to people in developing countries so that they can use entrepreneurship as a vehicle to get out of poverty.
