Financial Intelligence Conference Minneapolis


What does the Bible say?  What does the Data say?

…men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do–
200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command;1 Chronicles 12:32


Dear Friends,

We are living in unprecedented times. I am increasingly concerned that many believers are not being adequately informed about the days we are living in. The media is not accurately reflecting what is taking place around the world related to the economic condition of Europe and the U.S. We want you to know the truth so you can benefit from what we see coming.

We see a stock market breaking records. We hear of recovery. We are told that real estate is recovering. What is the truth? I CAN ASSURE YOU THE TRUTH IS NOT WHAT YOU ARE HEARING ON TELEVISION.

Let me ask you a few questions. Have you been told what an insider economist recently revealed in his newsletter?

  • The Chinese economy is in a death plunge. Of course, China’s official numbers don’t show that. We will explain why.
  • escrow-account9For the first time ever, China faces the perfect storm. It has the biggest real estate bubble in world history. Over $20 trillion in bad real estate loans, that have no chance of being paid back.  We will explain how this will affect you.
  • Detroit bankruptcy soon to be repeated in other major U.S. cities. In a move that should surprise no one, Detroit declared bankruptcy. This is the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history so far. It could easily come to $20 billion before it’s over.  Detroit is the first of many major cities that will officially go broke. Other current candidates include Chicago, Cleveland, Baltimore, Jacksonville, Fresno, Oakland, Philadelphia and many other cities and municipalities in California. Currently 100 American cities are in deep financial trouble. They owe $2 trillion in debt. We will explain the impact on you.
  • U.S. weekly claims for unemployment benefits continue to climb. The latest report showed 343,000 new claims. You cannot have an economic recovery when a third of a million new people each week apply for unemployment benefits. You will learn the real numbers.
  • Europe is mired in a deep depression. It gets worse each month. America’s slight rebound is turning into the next leg of the downturn. You need to know how to position yourself.
  • Financial-IntelligencePoliticians, bankers and businessmen have bought into their own propaganda. It doesn’t matter how bad things are. They believe if they present a brave face to the masses — if they spread the perception that the good times are back — somehow the downturn will magically reverse itself. Total nonsense. We will give you facts to show what is really happening. We will explain why this is too big for government to fix.
  • U.S. economy is in a marked slowdown. The U.S. Commerce Department reports retail spending rose a paltry 0.4% in June. A total disaster. Core retail sales were up even less, just 0.15%. This reflects the fact that Americans are not working, not making money, and not spending. The U.S. economy needs double digit increases to dig its way out of the ever-bigger hole it is in. That won’t happen. We will explain why.
  • More proof of the big downturn in U.S. business. Stockpiles of unsold goods in the U.S. rose 3.3% year over year, from May 2012 to May 2013. A huge, stunning number. It reflects the fact that goods are not selling, and no one is intentionally building stockpiles. With retail sales falling, that would be suicidal. What is the implication? We will tell you.

We are just touching the surface of what is developing into a global economic situation we have never experienced in our lifetime. Christians need to understand what in the world is really going on and get our heads out of the sand. Get prepared, spiritually and professionally!


There is so much more we could share with you, but we will save it for October 25, 26 for our two-day Financial Intelligence Conference.

We believe we should be like the people of Issachar, to know and understand the times we are living in. We also need to understand God’s economy and how it differs from the world’s economy. There is never a recession in heaven. But how do we operate from heaven’s perspective in an ungodly world that violates His Kingdom values? Please join us to learn how you can thrive in a season of uncertainty.

The good news is that these times can be the greatest opportunity a Christian has ever had in the marketplace for many generations! Or, it could be the most disastrous if you are not prepared for what may be coming. I pray that my concerns are not going to materialize. Like Joseph, we must prepare to be God’s change agent in a season of change.

We want to help prepare you to be God’s answer during this season of change. Joseph had answers and a strategy. We ARE headed for some turbulent days globally and should be prepared to successfully navigate during this season.

God desires for us to know and understand how to walk with Him in such a season. Please join me and my extraordinary friends who all have a unique expertise and will explain why we all believe the following:

  • Why the stock market has been up but may not be for long.
  • Understand the facts about the housing industry and whether now is a time to invest or wait.
  • Why the Perfect Storm is setting up 5 economic scenarios never seen in our lifetime.
  • Why what is coming can be the greatest opportunity for wealth transfer in many generations.
  • Hear from an industry insider that we cannot even put his name on our website about what is coming.
  • Understand the difference between God’s economy and the world’s economy.
  • How you CAN prepare for this season of change
  • Financial data you can believe from many reliable sources.
  • We will show compelling facts, figures and insider information the government and media is not telling you to help you understand the times we live in.
  • Scriptural insights and global market research to support the premises we will share.
  • Why it is the greatest opportunity for the Church.
  • What you need to know about the Old Testament principle of the Year of Jubilee and why it relates to our world right now.
  • What you should know about a Middle East showdown between Iran and Israel and its potential impact on the world.
  • Why we need not fear these potential events.

Additionally we will share…

  • Historic and economic reasons why the European debt crisis will affect America.
  • What the Bible says about the coming wealth transfer, and how to make sure that you are on the receiving side of the Proverbs 13:22 wealth transfer equation and why most do not understand this principle.
  • Biblical revelation about why the economic crisis is happening at this time.
  • What these events specifically mean for your personal finances and lifestyle.
  • 3 critical steps you should consider to survive and prosper in this season.
  • Exclusive new teaching from Craig Hill’s latest book, The Five Wealth Secrets 96% of Us Don’t Know

We have kept the time brief and will provide a wealth of information for our day and a half together.

I hope you will join us for this important gathering.





P.S. This is not an investment seminar. You will not be presented anything to invest in. We are doing this to help God’s people understand the extraordinary season we are entering.

Craig HillCraig Hill, President Family Foundations International

Craig holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Carleton College in Russian Area Studies and Geology and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the University of Chicago. Upon completion of his formal education, Craig worked as a corporate manager in the oil and gas exploration industry for several years. Being an experienced pilot, he later founded and managed a Learjet charter service. During these years, Craig (being fluent in the Russian language) frequently took time off from his business endeavors to minister the Gospel to the peoples of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Craig met his wife, Jan, through Youth With a Mission.

Craig is the author of several financial books, “Living on the Third River,” “Wealth, Riches, and Money,” “The GOODPLAN video series,” and “Five Wealth Secrets 96% of us Don’t Know.”

Having a specific interest in ministering to marriages and families, Craig pursued an internship and later a volunteer staff position at the New Life Counseling Center in Denver. He subsequently taught counseling and missions on the faculty of the Marilyn Hickey Bible College. In 1987, the Lord raised up Craig as Senior Pastor of a local church where he and Jan served for seven and a half years, until he was called by God to devote his full-time energy to the ministry of Family Foundations International. Through his past experience in missions, counseling and pastoral ministry, God has given Craig unique insight into marriage, family, financial and interpersonal relationships. This has resulted in his ability to identify for many people, root causes of relational conflict, compulsive habits, low self-esteem, workaholism, lack of financial provision and other undesirable life patterns, which are repeated from one generation to the next. By interweaving personal stories with biblical truths, God has anointed Craig to pierce through the veil of the mind to minister to the depths of the heart, resulting in real life change for many.

Kris Kirschner, CEO and Founder Real Strategy Advisors

Kris Kirschner PhotoKris Kirschner has trained over 50,000 real estate investors both nationally and internationally.  He is the author of five real estate investment courses, and has consulted business owners throughout the United States.  At the event Kris will focus on the changing times in today’s economy and what steps need to be taken if you are investing in or own real estate.  There is much change coming to the real estate industry and during the Financial Intelligence Conference Kris will share a permanent real estate solution for any economic cycle or season.   You will see how to make the right decisions now so you can be a part of a great transfer of wealth.

Kris will also share the Joseph journey he has walked including how at the top of his game, while owning Autopilot Real Estate, Inc., a multi-million dollar real estate education company, Kris physically and emotionally burned out.  You’ll hear how God intervened, had him close his education and investment businesses, and brought Kris to a place of solitude and rest.  It is here in this 4 year period of rest that the Lord began to reveal his assignment and calling in the marketplace.  It is here that Real Strategy Advisors™ was birthed to educate, train and unite Kingdom Investors so we can take back the land in great proportion.

The good news is that the real estate strategies are simple to learn and easy to use.  In fact, by the time Kris is finished, you will see how you have the ability to become 100% debt free of all personal debt even if you are brand new to real estate.  You will also learn a little known strategy on how to sell investment properties and cash out in any market or economy, without using banks.  Kris will also share a simple solution to build retirement income even if you have none currently; as well as where the best investments are when doing commercial or residential investment properties.
