Success Story

Northside Christian Church

With the encouragement of strong leaders, the congregation asked Disciples Church Extension Fund (DCEF) to walk alongside them with two services – building planning to help them design space that would meet their ministry needs and DCEF’s capital fundraising service to help them raise money for the construction of a sanctuary on the new site. Finally, with a Disciples Church Extension Fund loan, Northside began construction in 2009 of new space that houses their vibrant worshiping community of approximately 250-plus members and other vital ministries.

“Disciples Church Extension Fund inspires and empowers congregations to create Holy Places where people connect with God, each other and the community.”

In an era when buildings that have housed many congregations for decades no longer fit their ministry needs, DCEF partners with 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 in the world.
