Our History

Howard Dayton founded Crown Ministries in 1985, which merged with Larry Burkett’s ministry in 2000 to form Crown Financial Ministries. Howard transitioned from Crown and  founded Compass — finances God’s way in 2009.

Since 1985, the Lord has used these ministries to transform millions of people’s lives, in countries all around the world, as they’ve learned and applied what God’s Word has to say about finances in their lives.

Today, Compass continues to carry on this legacy as a financial discipleship ministry — helping people follow Jesus, make disciples and glorify God in the area of money and possessions. We are a financial discipleship ministry, that makes financial disciples.
