Lorne Jackson

President, Advisors with Purpose

After 25 years in the financial services business he sold his company and left the “for profit” world in 2002 to create the Canadian National Christian Foundation (CNCF) as a federally incorporated public foundation to serve donors in Canada wanting to give more efficiently and with more flexibility.  In 2017 CNCF reorganized and created a new charity called Financial Discipleship Canada (FDC).  Lorne provides overall leadership and vision for the work of FDC.

With a passion for giving and overall stewardship Lorne has written a book on the subject of Stewardship. In his book he points out that stewardship is an often misunderstood and misrepresented word. His book entitled, “After the Faith Decision… all else is stewardship” reminds readers that stewardship is not just about money or fundraising but is all of life as we live for our Lord.

He enjoys mentoring numerous business and professional men as well as donating his time to his local church. Lorne also enjoys tennis, travelling and sharing time with his wife Doris of over 50 years and their two married children and four grandchildren.
