Gary Wood, President of BDC Capital Management, specializes in Biblically Responsible Investing and will be leading a workshop titled, Men Living Generously that will focus on giving generously under the new tax laws. The workshop will discuss ways to increase income and significantly reduce income taxes before, during, and after retirement. It will review charitable gift annuities, direct gifts from IRA’s, gifts of appreciated stock and real estate, donor-advised funds, and tax-advantaged sales of family owned businesses.
As a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), the Lord has sustained Gary for over 35 years in the financial services industry. Before this, Gary’s discipleship journey started in Lynchburg with Jerry Falwell. He also cited Jerry Falwell as a hero in his life.
“Growing up in Lynchburg without a father, the Church became a very important part of my life. Dr. Falwell’s ministry pointed me to Christ and to my faithful Heavenly Father”.
Right now, Gary is reading Alan Gotthardt’s, Eternity Portfolio Illuminated, which teaches a faith-based approach to philanthropy and charitable gifting. His favorite book to give to others is Randy Alcorn’s Money, Possessions and Eternity.
Gary’s life verse is 1 John 4:10, and he says the man in scripture whom he has always identified with is Peter.
