• Life The miracle of conception produces the gift of a new child. An unborn child, given the opportunity, can grow up to become a president, a policeman, a pilot, anything they can dream of doing. At the Timothy Plan, we value life as a precious gift from God by not investing in companies that are directly or indirectly involved in the abortion industry. more
  • Family Remember a time when you could turn on the television and not worry about what your children might see or hear? At the Timothy Plan, we center our investments around companies that do not sponsor anti-family values (like sending messages of violence and sexuality). After all, aren’t our children our most valuable assets? more
  • Knowing You may know your financial planner's name and the firm for which he or she works, but do you know where your money is being invested? Most of us do not know what companies choose to do with their money. At the Timothy Plan, we avoid investing in corporations that are actively involved in anti-family practices. more
  • Stewardship We all put time and great care into the things God has allowed us to own. Why would we not take care of the money God has entrusted us with the same passion? At the Timothy Plan, we take great care in screening out companies that undermine Christian values, striving to be good stewards of all that He entrusts to us. more

Arthur D. Ally, Timothy Plan President

Our Story

Early in 1992, Arthur Ally, then President and Owner of Covenant Financial Management, was challenged to design a retirement plan for pastors of independent churches and offer it on a national scale.  Mr. Ally searched the entire investment industry for any professionally managed program that would complement the Christian world-view passion of evangelical pastors.

After identifying several socially screened funds, Mr. Ally dug further, but failed to find a fund that screened for more than a few social issues, including alcohol and tobacco.
