Faith Driven Consumers Often Overlooked

Faith Driven Consumers are Christians who live a faith-driven life – including how they choose to spend their money. Christians make daily decisions based on their biblical worldview and this influences the marketplace.

As a rapidly emerging and economically powerful movement, Faith Driven Consumers comprise 17 percent of the population, 41 million Americans, and spend $2 trillion annually.

While many companies routinely target other consumer segments, Faith Driven Consumers have been largely overlooked. If you want to match your wallet or pocketbook to support companies whose corporate actions are compatible with your faith, you may be interested in learning what companies are currently on the list.
