Borrow Loan Types

Loan Types

Many types of loans are available through Disciples Church Extension Fund (DCEF), some of which are available nowhere else. Because our ministries depend on your success, we’ll work with you to plan and administer your loans, with care, concern and compassion. Take a look at what we can offer you and your congregation today:

Accessibility Loans

Property Purchase Loans

Whether your congregation is looking to purchase property with an existing facility or vacant land – we can help.

Green Loans

These loans are for congregations that want their building and its facilities to be eco-friendly

In an era when buildings that have housed many congregations for decades no longer fit their ministry needs, DCEF partners with Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregations to help strengthen the stewardship of their financial and capital resources so they are in a better position to do ministry where and how it is most needed.

In short, DCEF accepts investor funds from Disciples individuals and congregations, pays a competitive rate of interest, and then lends that money to congregations who seek to be prayerful stewards of their building and capital resources to further Christ’s work.
