Effective February 1, 2016, LCEF is no longer originating education debt repayment loans for Rostered Church Workers (RCWs). These loans will instead be originated by the Lutheran Federal Credit Union.
By clicking ‘Visit the LFCU Website’ below, you will leave Lutheran Church Extension Fund’s website and will be redirected to Lutheran Federal Credit Union’s website, located at another domain and a different server.
LCEF has supported the launch of the Lutheran Federal Credit Union (LFCU), which serves the LCMS with financial products including checking accounts, savings accounts and personal loans.
LFCU will now also originate education debt repayment loans. Since the LFCU is a federally chartered credit union, borrowers in all 50 states can be served by this Lutheran organization. Please visit the LFCU website to learn more and apply for an education loan.
As a consultant for Capital Funding Services (CFS), Randy enjoys assisting the Lord’s people in experiencing the joys of generosity. He is a firm believer in the Scriptural truth that “whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6). He says, “Stewardship is simply reflecting the image of our generous God, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing.” His leadership has encouraged his congregation to provide generous support for ministries locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Randy has been a parish pastor for 35 years. For the past 28 years, he has been serving First Immanuel Lutheran Church, Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Leading a large congregation has enabled him to experience six capital campaigns, allowing him to provide great insights to pastors in capital campaigns and stewardship.
Randy has served Concordia University Wisconsin as an adjunct professor of theology for 26 years. In 2010, the university awarded him the honor of “Distinguished Alumnus.” He has also served 12 years on the South Wisconsin District Board of Directors, including six years as Board Chair and First Vice President of the district. He conducts seminars on generosity and provides encounters for parish pastors to discuss cultural issues and the church’s impact.
Randy resides in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, with his wife, Diana, who is the South Wisconsin District’s Lutheran Church Extension Fund’s District Vice President. They have two married daughters and three granddaughters. Randy’s mission statement is to serve God by serving others.
