Chuck Bentley, CEO
For over a decade, Chuck has traveled the world teaching biblical financial principles to the affluent, middle class, poor and ultra poor. As host of the daily national radio broadcast, My MoneyLife™, Chuck connects with all generations and inspires his audience with a strong scriptural emphasis.
Following in the footsteps of Crown’s cofounders, Howard Dayton and the late Larry Burkett, Chuck has assumed the mantle of a strategic organization, founded in 1976, that now reaches around the world with staff on every continent, a media presence throughout North and South America, and books and materials serving the spiritual and financial needs of all people, regardless of their economic condition. Crown’s outreach impacts individuals, families, churches, and businesses through the joyful, liberating biblical truth of making and managing money so that God’s purposes for one’s life can be fulfilled.
Chuck is the executive producer of the God Provides™ Film Learning Experience, Crown’s first series of short films designed to convey God’s principles of provision and sustainability through dramatic Bible stories seldom captured in visual media. He is also the co-creator of the Crown Money Map™ and a contributor to Saddleback Church’s small group series, Managing Our Finances God’s Way. These powerful resources are being used to transform lives around the world. In July 2011, Chuck’s first book Root of Riches was released.
Chuck was born July 2, 1957 in Wichita Falls, Texas. He enjoys reading, the outdoors and his family. He and his wife, Ann, have been married since 1978. Both are graduates of Baylor University, where Chuck earned a B.A. in Business Administration, served as Student Body President, and received both Outstanding Sophomore Man and Outstanding Senior Man awards. He is frequently a guest speaker addressing both churches and business leaders on biblical financial topics. Chuck and Ann live near Atlanta, Georgia and have four sons, a daughter-in-law, and a grandson.
