LCEF has employed numerous financial tools to help our borrowers, including several specifically put in place by our COVID-19 Response Team. Needs are unique. So are the remedies. And we continue to look for more. 

Congregations are encouraged to contact your LCEF District Vice President to discuss the remedy that allows your work to continue. 

Our investors  faithfully support the work of LCEF while earning good interest on their funds. Now for then ever your dollars are helping schools, churches, LCMS ministries and RSOs. 


If you are an investor - THANK YOU. If you are not yet, NOW is the time as LCEF is still offering 3% - a very competitive rate. 

Since 1978, our investors have made it possible for Lutheran Church Extension Fund to support the work of tens of thousands of Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod individuals and ministries through loans and ministry support.

LCEF is taking extraordinary measures to support the Church and her workers. This can only happen through your gift to or investment with LCEF.
