Maybe your church worships in an older facility, one that has outdated wiring, pipes, insulation or a host of other challenges.
Maybe your facility is newer but you have outgrown it. The classroom space is crowded, the kitchen doesn’t accommodate your growing congregation or the parking lot is too small or in need of repair.
Maybe you currently meet in a theater and are ready to move to your first church home. The vision has been cast and your congregation is highly anticipating its own facility.
Maybe you have a church loan that no longer works for you. The terms may not be optimal or the interest rate is too high. You need to refinance.
These are just a few of the scenarios we see all the time. Churches on a mission to reach more people for Christ but challenged by financial hurdles they need help climbing.
What should you do?
You can always go the commercial bank route, but do they really understand who you are and what you want to accomplish—at your deepest level?
For nearly 60 years, CIF has been the bridge between church dreams and their reality. By providing loans, refinancing and nearly six decades of church-lending experience, CIF has been a partner for hundreds of churches on the road to realizing their Kingdom-fueled dreams.
Here are a just a few ways CIF is unique:
Consultative – There is no one-size-fits-all approach. We want to work with you to make this experience as beneficial to your ministry as possible.
Ministry-focused – Ultimately, this loan is to expand or deepen your ministry. The heart of what you’re doing is demonstrating Christ’s love in your community.
Ongoing conversations – We’re eager to walk with you through each step of the process—whether that’s six weeks, six months or six years.
High level of church-lending experience – We’ve been doing this for nearly six decades. Through literally hundreds of relationships with churches over the years, we’ve seen virtually everything scenario and know how best to help.
Customized and personal – Each situation is unique. Your church is not like the church down the road or the church in the next town or the suburb over. Each relationship we have is personal and tailored appropriately.
Lend in both small and large communities – Ministry happens in small towns and in large cities—and everywhere in between. We want to help make it happen wherever God has called you.
