For Individuals

Our passion is helping fund the ministries that are important to you.  We will gladly meet one-on-one to get to know you, find out what is important to you, and what your giving goals are.  All of our visits are confidential, and there is no cost to you or the ministry you wish to bless.  What ministry is important to you?

For Churches

Funding ministry is a challenge for all churches.  However, there are things that churches can do to prepare.  The Foundation assists churches with many services, such as loans, grants, investments and education, to fulfill our mission and your ministries.  We serve you as you serve your flock.
