ERIC L. DUNAVANT

Eric L. Dunavant is a serial entrepreneur, author, speaker, coach, and creator of the Kingdom ROI method. Through his work with families and business owners, Mr. Dunavant helps Kingdom-minded leaders break free from the idolatry of the world’s wealth-building systems—and discover a new strategy for creating abundance with peace, intention, and lifetime and generational impact at the helm.
To date, Kingdom ROI has helped families consistently grow their businesses by more than 16% annually, cut their income tax burden by an average of more than 12%, slash capital gains taxes by more than 61%, and quadruple their lifetime charitable impact without impacting their current or future lifestyles.

Even more importantly though, Mr. Dunavant is proud to help his clients question conventional wisdom, rethink the status quo, and create lasting peace and abundance for their families.

Mr. Dunavant is also a two-time winner of the New Orleans City Business Money Maker award, a back-to-back recipient of the New Orleans Area Five Star Professional Wealth Manager award, and Safe Harbor’s Real Man of St. Tammany Parish. He’s also an accomplished writer and has been featured in a variety of media outlets such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Insider.

Outside of his business, Mr. Dunavant is a dedicated husband, father, and the proud Co-Founder of To All With Love, a faith-based nonprofit dedicated to the fight against world poverty. He’s passionate about helping leaders all over the world open their eyes to what’s really possible for their wealth—and create a plan to maximize their Return on Intention for decades to come.

KINGDOM ROI GENEROSITY STRATEGIST

ANGEL DUNAVANT

Angel Dunavant is the Generosity Strategist at Kingdom ROI University and the wife of our President & Founder, Eric Dunavant. As the ‘heart’ of Kingdom ROI, Angel’s goal is to look at the world and the people in it through the eyes of Jesus. She strives to go past preconceived notions and treat every human being with love and kindness—reaching beyond the typical ‘corporate business’ definition of success, to prioritize a KINGDOM definition of success.

In her work through the years as co-founder of the Dunavants’ nonprofit organization, To All With Love, Angel has transformed from an enthusiastic language teacher, loving wife, and dedicated mother—into a passionate advocate and facilitator of a wildly successful corporate giving fund. She’s also an inspirational example of how and why it’s so important for business owners to include spouses in every step of their business growth journey!

In her work with our clients, Angel shines a light on the many unique opportunities successful Christian business owners have to prioritize ministry, even as we build and protect massive generational abundance. She believes Kindom-minded business owners are in a unique position to spread the message and love of Jesus and looks forward to supporting KROI clients as they walk in their generosity journey.

FAITH ROI STRATEGIST

CHRISTOPHER CALLAHAN

Christopher joined the Kingdom ROI team in February 2022, bringing with him a decade of experience in walking alongside business owners in a pastoral capacity, as he supported them in their personal and spiritual journeys. With his extensive background in pastoral care and his unwavering commitment to supporting couples, Christopher is well-equipped to guide individuals in their pursuit of thriving relationships.

Christopher’s dedication to marriage and couples is not limited to his professional life. He lives out his beliefs in his personal life as well, as evidenced by his loving partnership with his wife, Mallory. In May 2022, they joyfully welcomed their first child, Elleanna Grace, into the world, further strengthening their bond and igniting their passion for building a future family together.

However, Christopher’s journey to this point has been marked by profound loss and resilience. In 2017, he experienced the heart-wrenching loss of his previous wife, Amber, after serving her through the challenges of stage four metastatic breast cancer. This deeply painful experience has shaped Christopher’s perspective on the importance of cherishing every moment and investing wholeheartedly in the relationships we hold dear.

Embracing the belief that love is not a mere accident but a conscious choice, Christopher often emphasizes: A couple does not fall in love; they grow in love, and that takes time and intentionality. His heartfelt conviction drives him to help couples cultivate and nurture their love, fostering relationships that not only thrive but also inspire others.

Christopher firmly believes that unified marriages, founded on Biblical truths, have the transformative power to create exponential impact on future generations. By promoting healthy and fulfilling relationships rooted in the wisdom and principles of the Scriptures, he envisions a world where Kingdom business couples are equipped with the necessary tools and unwavering support to build strong foundations firmly grounded in God’s Word. With these solid foundations, they can navigate life’s challenges with faith, love, and resilience, leaving a lasting legacy that inspires and blesses future generations.

With his wealth of experience and genuine passion for marriage, couples, and mentorship, Christopher brings a unique blend of expertise and empathy to his role at Kingdom ROI. Whether he’s guiding couples through challenging times or helping them realize their full potential, Christopher is dedicated to helping you create lasting, meaningful connections that enrich your life and leave a positive legacy for generations to come.
