Live with meaning Foundation

Retirement is generally seen today as a time of relaxation and self focus. However, God calls us love, serve, and help others for a lifetime. In fact, He has been preparing us for this last season literally our entire lives. Sadly, countless Christians are entering a state of spiritual dormancy not realizing or knowing how they can continue to have an impact for God’s Kingdom.

The Live with Meaning Foundation helps churches and ministries encourage and equip Christians to maximize God’s call through events, resources, networks, and more.

Bruce Bruinsma

Bruce Bruinsma is a central figure in the "Retirement Reformation" movement. As the Founder and CEO of Envoy Financial, a retirement provider that serves those in ministry, Bruce has encouraged men and women for over 25 years to look at retirement as a "Future Funded Ministry" where they will have the time and financial freedom to apply a life's worth of talent and experiences to God's Kingdom. In 2017, Bruce formed the Live with Meaning Foundation to further empower Christians towards a entire lifetime of ministry.


Founded by Richard and Leona Bergstrom, Re-Ignite is committed to helping men and women entering their second half of life find meaning and purpose. Their retreats, seminars, and related materials help individuals discover who God designed them to be and helps release their dreams as they consider the next season of life.

Envoy Financial

For over 25 years, Envoy has specialized in providing cost-effective retirement plans to churches, missionaries, and other faith-based organizations. Envoy is built on the belief that is we financially prepare for retirement, it can be a season when we could have the most freedom with our finances and time to continue serving God and others.
