In the world of business, finding a deeper sense of purpose can transform the way we approach our work. Today, we have the privilege of hearing from Camillia Dechent, a business owner with Relevant Finance, who has integrated her passion for ministry into her finance career. Camillia’s story demonstrates how aligning your business with a greater purpose can create a lasting impact. Camillia, the founder of Relevant Finance, has merged her professional endeavors with her commitment to giving back. Drawing inspiration from her personal journey of overcoming trauma and hardships, she sought to create a business that made a meaningful difference in the lives of others. By partnering with an organization called Mercy Multiplied, Camillia found a way to intertwine her business with her ministry. Mercy Multiplied is dedicated to helping women aged 13 to 32 who are dealing with various challenges, such as trafficking, eating disorders, and depression. Their Christ-centered approach empowers these women to find healing and restoration. Camillia’s involvement with Mercy Multiplied allowed her to witness the transformative power of faith and inspired her to apply those principles within her own business.

Proverbs 11:25 (NIV)

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
