Invest in Ministry

Make a difference today that lasts for eternity.

Our Story

Uniting believers who share the vision to see God's Kingdom built.

  • Your vision is valued.

    We believe that God has given unique vision to the Church and its leaders. So unlike for-profit lenders, we evaluate passion and conviction alongside budgets and spreadsheets. We will equip you with quality financial resources to build, expand, remodel, relocate, or refinance and join you in pursuing God’s calling for your church. When you choose to work with CEP, you’re choosing more than just a lender, you’re choosing a partner in ministry.

  • Your story is powerful.

    At CEP, we take the concept of “investing in ministry” literally. Since 1950, our investors have contributed more than $2 billion to fund thousands of ministry loans nationwide. And, although past performance doesn’t guarantee future results, no investor has ever lost money! By investing with CEP, you will not only reap the rewards of our competitive rates and flexible terms, you will also create opportunities for real world impact and ignite stories of ministry growth across the nation.

  • Your future is abundant.

    No matter how we envision our retirement, history shows that most of us aren’t prepared to achieve those hopes and dreams. To help alter this reality and enable possibilities, we provide Traditional and Roth IRA options as well as a 403(b) plan for ministries. While you gain income and tax benefits, ministries throughout America will also receive the financial support needed to thrive. Start planning for your future today, and, eventually, you’ll find you’ve funded more than your own future.

  • Your legacy is lasting.

    Whether you’re rich or poor, you’ve been entrusted with much. So on the day, God calls you home, ensure that your earthly possessions are gifted to those you love most. At CEP, we provide a wealth of resources and experienced professionals to help reach your will and estate planning goals. We also offer planned giving options so your legacy will not only influence family and friends, but it will propel ministries for years to come.

  • A Love for a City

    “You’ve been chosen to represent our school on a missions trip to New Orleans.” Wayne Northup, then a student at North Central University (NCU), struggled to conceal his excitement. Chosen.
