Austin Colby thrives on encouraging and pulling out strengths in others.  He is a high-energy guy who loves nothing more than making connections and helping others find success in what they are compelled and gifted to do.

Though he is a successful, dedicated Certified Financial Planner Practioner (CFP®) and owner/CEO of The Wealth Group, a cutting-edge wealth management firm outside Minneapolis, Austin’s overriding passion is to do life God’s way—in his heart, in his home, in his business, in his free time. 

He believes that God’s best for us is liberty.  The Bible says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom”  (2 Cor. 3:19).  Austin is confident that this is true for our hearts and wallets.  It is his conviction that true wealth is more than money and we are to steward every aspect of the gift of life.  We should have freedom (not burden) in the area of finance to reflect and freely share the goodness of our Father.

As the primary contributor of Focal Point, Austin’s vision is to pass on his most frequently requested teaching, counsel, and practices.  Topics he covers regularly include demolishing debt, money in marriage, Biblical principles of stewardship, giving, and wealth management planning.

Austin’s prayer for Focal Point is that visitors would gain insight and understanding of how to get to a place of peace, freedom, and generosity with their finances, particularly.

In 2003, Austin’s life was entirely changed by a newfound relationship with Jesus Christ.  Three years later, he married Jennifer and today their home bustles from sunrise to sunset with the planet’s most incredible sound….children.  Seven of them:  Luke, Jake, Kate, Jude, Claire, James, & Joel.  The Colbys reside in Minnesota where they homeschool their children on five acres outside the city while also caring for a flock of chickens, three barn cats, and a black lab named King Tebow.

If you’d enjoy a fireside chat beneath the stars, definitely set up a fellowship night at the Colby farm, Mission Fields.

Blessings as you seek the Lord for wisdom regarding your finances and more!
