THE STORY OF OUR NAME In 1999, Carolyn and Brad Neal were involved in a capital campaign with their church in Lincoln, Illinois. The theme of the campaign was illustrated by an acorn which would become a mighty oak. A friend was inspired to give them a resilient sapling with eight leaves which had sprung from their own majestic red oak. Through the years, the little tree grew strong and true, and today it shades the entrance to Brad and Carolyn’s home. That tree inspired our company name, Red Oak Financial. Lovingly nurtured from its inception, it has weathered the seasons and has matured to our present team. Inspired by the life stages of the red oak, we are dedicated to providing you with the resources and encouragement to grow.
