Retirement savings that grow the Kingdom.

Build your retirement with an IRA from Church Extension Plan. You will enjoy tax-advantaged investing while you support ministry.

Grow your retirement faster

How do you get the most out of your earnings, while still putting something away for tomorrow? Save as much as possible, for as many years as possible!

When you use a tax-deferred savings plan you’re able to put dollars away before they’re taxed. More for you at retirement, less in taxes today.

CEP offers a good rate of return, which will also help your retirement account grow faster.

Invest in what matters 

When your retirement account is with CEP, you’re supporting Assemblies of God churches and ministries.

While many retirement accounts invest in the stock market, bonds, or even precious metals, your ministry based investment with CEP will grow by funding church loans for expanding ministries.

IRA Options

CEP offers three different IRA types. Compare accounts to determine which best fits your situation and goals. Then check with your tax advisor.

403(b), for qualified ministers and ministry staff

CEP also offers a 403(b) retirement plan that combines tax advantages with the option of employer contributions, to maximize the amount you can save for your retirement years.
