“A place that’s right and in the right place.”
Since 1883, Disciples Church Extension Fund has helped Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregations plan and finance Holy Places to be used for ministry, for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ from our doorsteps to the end of the Earth. Our primary sources of funds are from Christian people who faithfully entrust dollars to us for the work of God’s Church.

Shawnee Park Community Park Christian Church understands that Holy Places are meant to help, not hinder, ministry. Here’s their story about how leasing their Holy Place freed them up to focus on ministry, inside and outside their walls:
Now What? A symposium on repurposing…our buildings, our outreach, our stewardship, our leadership
We get it. The past is past. We need to innovate, create, find new ways to use our buildings and be the church. This event is a collaboration of the Building Funds of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ and The Episcopal Church.

New Disaster Response service helps Texas church devastated by fire
Within hours of a devastating fire on May 19 at First Christian Church in Lake Jackson, Texas, Disciples Church Extension Fund Advisor Jim Michel received a call from the Coastal Plains Area of the Southwest Region telling him about the church’s building disaster. As he had done five years ago when a tornado ravaged South Joplin Christian Church in Joplin, Mo., Jim put his facilities expertise to work immediately to help the congregation.
For more information about our Disaster Response service, contact Jim Michel at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800.274.1883.
