About Us

At Church Extension Plan, our mission is to build relationships, empower ministry, and proclaim the Gospel of our Lord.

Church Extension Plan is a ministry providing premier financial and administrative services to the churches and districts of the Assemblies of God and their constituents, assisting them in fulfilling their vision of spreading the Gospel.

Our President

For decades, Church Extension Plan has emphasized the importance of building relationships. Every church, pastor, donor, and investor we have worked with or seek to work with has a story to tell—one that is unique and valuable. As we listen to men and women share their stories, we make a real and lasting connection and are reminded that together we all play a part in a much larger story.

At CEP, this is our mission. We exist to make God known, to share His story. In every decision we make, our heart is to see the Kingdom built.

Looking ahead to the future of our ministry, we want to continue to equip leaders and to come alongside them, to be there as a resource for them. As we do so, new stories of ministry impact are unleashed, ministries are empowered to declare the Gospel, and the Kingdom of God grows greater.

As president of CEP, I invite you to join us in this mission. We have been privileged to work with more than 3,000 churches and 20,000 investors, and I encourage you read their stories and witness the power of our ever-present Lord. We have truly enjoyed the blessing of God on our ministry. Everything we are and everything we have achieved, we owe to Him. To God be the glory!

Be blessed,

Rev. Peter F. Clements
President, Church Extension Plan

Our History

Church Extension Plan was founded in 1950 by the Superintendent of the Oregon District of the Assemblies of God. Today, we are owned by 59 member districts with 25 district superintendents serving on our board of directors.

At the heart of each of our transactions is a spirit of win-win partnership, which often takes us “outside the box” of a traditional financial institution. We’re encouraged to stretch with (and for) a ministry organization that requires a creative financial solution whenever it is fiscally prudent to do so. We are blessed to develop these partnerships through our ministries to districts and churches, families and individuals.
