Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) has served as the financial extension of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) since 1978. We provide customized loans, investments and ministry solutions to help support new and growing ministries and workers of the LCMS.
We are a people and organization who confess that God is the source of all good gifts. We are stewards of those gifts to boldly love others for the sake of Christ.
We are proud to support those individuals, churches, schools and organizations who work tirelessly to share the compassion of Christ, meeting the needs of those who are suffering, poor, sick or lonely.

“I am privileged to be serving together with our staff. I am grateful for what they do for the Church and His kingdom. Our success and future will be because of each and every one of them and the role they play each and every day … caring for our investors, supporting our borrowers, telling the stories and finding joy in what we do.” –Rev. Bart Day, LCEF president and CEO
