Rev. H. Alan McBride RICP®, RSSA®
Alan McBride holds the Retirement Income Certified Professional® designation from The American College of Financial Services and the Registered Social Security Analyst® designation from the National Association of Registered Social Security Analysts.
He has over nine years of experience as an expert Financial Analyst in the U.S. Army, followed by three years of service with a D.C.-based Governmental Contracting Company as a Senior Financial Analyst II. During his tenure, he inspected and detected financial waste and shortfall in government contracts for Army and Air Force Major Hospitals and Medical Treatment Facilities on military installations in the U.S. and abroad. His job was to identify and prevent the loss and waste of governmental money unknowingly and unnecessarily. He later co-founded Kingdom Financial, Inc. with his now-wife, Laurie A. McBride, MBA, in May 2020, providing similar help for families in funding their retirement goals and dreams.
2008, Alan was introduced to Crown Financial Ministries’ biblical stewardship principles. He completed the Crown Budget Coaching Certification Training in 2020. He is now a Crown Financial Ministries Volunteer Budget Coach, helping families throughout the United States. Alan uses Crown’s proven biblical methods and resources to help transform individuals’ and families’ lives in the areas of faith and finances.
Alan is honored to share that he currently serves as an Associate Reverend at Lewis Chapel Missionary Baptist Church (LCMBC). He is under the guidance and mentorship of Rev. Dr. Christoppher D. Stackhouse, Sr., who is LCMBC’s Senior Pastor. In addition to his church duties, Alan is pursuing Full-Time Theology Studies at the Carolina College of Biblical Studies on campus.
Alan is a retirement income strategist who uses his military and governmental contracting financial analysis knowledge to help his clients compassionately and painlessly. He aims to provide accurate diagnoses followed by practical recommendations to his clients. His distinctive approach to financial services assists his clients in recognizing and redirecting the money they are unknowingly and unnecessarily losing, which is commonly referred to as a wealth transfer, back to their households. This approach enables them to save 15% of their gross annual household income and adequately fund their retirement in “Safe Money Places.” Alan believes avoiding losses is more important than picking the winners, and this approach allows him to provide proven, time-tested strategies for generating reliable and consistent streams of income during retirement.
