Lutheran Church Extension Fund

Where Investments Build Ministry

Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) empowers LCMS ministries with every dollar invested. We provide customized loans and support services to new and growing ministries as well as rostered church workers who dedicate their lives to sharing the Gospel. We also offer investments for everyone from babies to grandparents. When you invest with LCEF,  you’re not only supporting LCMS ministries, you’re also partnering with a financial institution that shares your Lutheran beliefs.
