Our Ministry

 

A unique ministry-through-investment organization that offers Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) members the opportunity to invest their money, earn interest, and help build LCMS churches and schools at the same time.

 

 

Our Mission

 

The mission of Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) is to support the Church in fulfilling its mission of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ by being a Christ-centered servant partner of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), ensuring that funds and services are available now and in the future. 

 

 

How does it work?

 

LCEF investments (from individuals and congregations) earn a fair rate of return. At the same time, these invested dollars are loaned to LCMS organizations at reasonable rates.  As borrowers repay their loans, funds become available for other congregations and schools to acquire loans for their building projects. Without the support from investors, LCEF would not be able to offer custom loans and facility-planning services to the entire LCMS. When you invest with LCEF, your dollars earn interest, but your true investment is in helping others spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

 

LCEF Supports the Church in fulfilling its mission of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
