The Church Improvement Program®

The Church Improvement Program is a multi-staged process designed to help churches identify, assess and fund critical church repairs and upgrades. After you identify the critical need, we run an assessment and share a report on the work to be done. If you decide to make the repairs or upgrades, you and your District Vice President (DVP) can explore the LCEF Church Improvement Loan. For more information and details please visit lcef.org/church-improvement.

Church Improvement Loans are limited to congregations and include:

  • Maximum 10-year term
  • Up to $150,000
  • 24 months at Cost of Funds (COF) adjusted annually
  • LCEF COF plus up to 2.5% adjusted annually for remaining term
  • Payments fully amortized over term

Church Improvement Loans can be used for:

  • Critical repairs that can lead to substantial damage and cost if not fixed in a timely manner
  • Upgrades that enhance your church’s appearance and comfort
  • Projects that improve energy efficiency and save money in the long term
