Money can be an incredible servant, but it’s a terrible master
Money has an enormous impact on the way you run your ministry. If you are a leader of a growing church of any size, you understand that money drives some of the most important decisions you make, from which position to hire when you need to hire three positions, to how you’re going to fund a project that will offset major space constraints in attendance to reach more people. Unlike a lot of the services out there in church world, our goal is not to help you fit into a box, it’s to help you build a box that makes sense for you and your church, which puts you in a position to say yes to growth. When you have a financial strategy that makes sense, you’re able to accelerate the vision of the church and eliminate all of the concerns about whether or not you can get your project funded.
There are two incredibly important components to funding a project-1) an intelligent financial strategy and 2) competition. Banks often struggle with churches because they frankly don’t understand them. We eliminate that issue by taking your financial information, goals, and objectives, and putting them into a format that any bank can understand. We then ensure that there are multiple banks at the table competing for your business, so that you are in control of the process from day one. The result is the ability to not only get your project funded, but to receive the most competitive rates and terms available in the market and to build a debt strategy around the objectives and timelines of the church.
