Who we are
Aspire Financial Advisors is a full-service financial firm located in Concord, Massachusetts (a Boston suburb). We focus on providing financial guidance to Christian churches and the people that attend them. Our areas of specialty include retirement income planning, portfolio management, and charitable gift planning. We also provide educational seminars for churches, schools, and other Christian organizations.
Rev. John F. Harrison, CFP® is the founder and president of Aspire Financial Advisors, Inc. He has been in the financial services field since 1990 and has been an active ordained minister since 1991. He is a Certified Financial Planner™ professional, meaning he has met the rigorous requirements of the CFP Board of Standards in the areas of education, experience, examination, and ethics.
John’s dual vocations help him appreciate the realities of Christian financial planning from the perspective of both the pulpit and the pew. Many years of preaching and teaching have helped him develop as an educational speaker, fueling his drive to make complex concepts understandable, interesting, and actionable.
Whether teaching a financial seminar for 200 people in a church, or talking one-on-one in his office, John’s goal is to separate the things people need to know from the things that are merely nice to know and to transfer his understanding of key principles to his listeners.
In addition to speaking and writing, John crunches the numbers and prepares the financial plans for all clients of Aspire Financial Advisors.
