About Amanda Burke The Financial Apologist

Amanda has worked in the finance industry in North Carolina for more than 15 years. She is a graduate of Campbell University's Trust and Wealth Management Program, an Accredited Financial Counselor® (AFC®), and is also pursuing the CFP® (Certified Financial Planner) designation in 2021.

Amanda is the former co-founder of Camp Change Ministries, founded in 2017, from conversations between moms about the need to help children have a more biblical understanding of financial stewardship. Over four summers, Amanda developed a curriculum and led Camp Change summer camps in her local community. During this time, Amanda had many conversations about great kids who are also greatly discontent and struggle with a sense of entitlement. She began to see a more considerable need for Christian leadership in the area of finances for kingdom building.

She led these camps in Title I school districts which was an exceptional opportunity to minister to children and families living in poverty. Amanda felt a significant burden to help families realign with God's purpose and teach children about God's responsibility through their finances. In 2019 Amanda received the governor's award from North Carolina recognizing her volunteer service in this area. After much prayer, in 2020 Amanda decided to dissolve Camp Change Ministries and venture out to rebrand the camp as the sole creator of Camp Cents, with a more apologetics-based approach to financial literacy.

Amanda is now excited to announce that she is the founder of The Financial Apologist and creator of Camp Cents! She is excited to use her experience developing curriculum to develop a robust curriculum and other materials that engage children and families on the importance of financial literacy, apologetics, logic, and missions.

The Financial Apologist and Camp Cents will teach children and families to engage in biblical discussions and dissect various worldviews regarding conversations about money. Applied apologetics teaches children to defend a more biblical view of financial literacy through logic and reasoning, which is the "argue for a healthier approach" method. This method teaches children and families to defend a healthier approach to finances and be good stewards of resources that God has given them, which allows for Christians to further the advancement of the gospel by supporting mission work financially. The ministry's mission is to enable children and families to know God and make him known.

Amanda will also use her experience in organizing and managing Christian ministries' strategies to include counseling, missions, sales, budgeting, marketing, communications, fundraising, development, and copywriting. Amanda has also worked with other ministry leaders on various projects. She has worked with Art Rainer, Norm Geisler International Ministries, and Mama Bear Apologetics. Amanda has contributed to The Money Challenge for Teens by Art Rainer and began working with Mama Bear apologetics in 2019 by leading study groups in churches and has helped Mama Bear Apologetics create the first study guide.
Please prayerfully consider supporting Amanda on her journey to creating much-needed materials for children and families!
