Each October, LCEF provides an annual Offering Circular to every investor. The Offering Circular contains information pertaining to LCEF’s investment products, lending activity, financial statements and more. Please read the latest Offering Circular before filling out an application. Some states have different disclosure requirements. Please select the appropriate document based on where you live.
The State of Washington has adopted a regulatory position that currently prohibits residents of Washington State from opening a new investment unless they are already an LCEF investor.
You may also view the supplemental Annual Report. This document offers investors and supporters a general overview of financial results, business activities and stories about how investments can impact ministries and help build the Kingdom.
You can rejoice in knowing resources are preserved for LCMS ministries by opting in to be notified by email when the Offering Circular and Annual Report are ready to view online. This small step saves money used for printing, reduces paper in your mailbox and gives you access to documents online whenever needed.

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.

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.
