David Sims, Jd PhD
President of BGW | Financial
My partner, David Dennison, and I are passionate about helping Christian churches and schools be good stewards of their funding and financing decisions. We represent your best interests zealously at every phase of our consultative funding and financing process. And we are serious about helping protect our clients from getting "fleeced" by unscrupulous lenders and brokers or just plain bad borrowing decisions.
Please be sure to take advantage of our free Funding Solutions Analysis (FSA). We create and revise your FSA along the course of your project's progress from vision to funding to construction completion, with a view to helping you decide when and how best to make a decision to take on debt for your project. We can also help you analyze your current debt structure and very often can help you refinance your debt into significantly better rate and payment terms and conditions.
My favorite stewardship text is 1 Corinthians 4:1-2, where Paul says, "Let everyone regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy." David and I strive to be found trustworthy in our representation of you. We take your ministry and responsibilities to God and your members, staff, students and faculty, as the case may be, very seriously. We sincerely desire to come alongside you as you seek to be faithful, trustworthy stewards of the "mysteries of God" -- stewards of the gospel of God in Jesus Christ.
I've been blessed to be married to my wife Tamara for over 25 years. We have 8 children (ages 23 to 7 as of March 2012) and one grandson. I am ordained and licensed to preach the gospel, am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Florida, and hold the Series 6, 24, 62, 63 and 65 securities licenses and life and health insurance license.
