Bio: Shana Burt, Financial Advisor & Host of Financial Issues

Host of Financial Issues
After hearing Dan Celia on her local AFR radio station in 2013, Shana felt led by God to shift her career focus to specialize in biblically responsible investing. Recognizing a kindred heart and common goal with Shana, Dan Celia, founder of Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries, began mentoring Shana in 2015. By 2020, Shana was regularly co-hosting with Dan on his daily live radio program.
When FISM founder, Dan Celia, went home to be with the Lord in March of 2022, Shana was the natural choice to take up Dan’s mantle as host of Financial Issues.
With a desire to honor Dan’s legacy and God’s leading, Shana has embraced the opportunity:
“I am humbled, honored and beyond excited to continue the work of Financial Issues which the Lord chose and anointed Dan to start. Jesus said that it is harder for a rich man to get into heaven than for the camel to pass through the eye of a needle. I pray that the Lord uses my efforts with Financial Issues to help remove the stumbling block of wealth that blocks the door to salvation for some and hinders the abundant life for others. If we can learn to put the Lord first in our finances, we will see God honor those efforts and use us and the treasure we’ve committed to Him to multiply His kingdom.
“After getting to know Dan and listening to him on Financial Issues, I knew that I was equally yoked with his ministry, with Dan’s long-term approach to investing and with his commitment to Biblically Responsible Investing. I believe that Dan, through the FISM strategy, did a great job teaching partners to build and manage a biblically responsible portfolio on their own. My desire is to continue to encourage and instruct Christians to free themselves of the bonds of worldly prosperity and the all-consuming question of whether to build a bigger kingdom or bigger barns.”
