Helping you navigate your purchase
Focusing on ministry is difficult enough without having to navigate a major land or property purchase. Whether your church has its eye on a vacant parcel or the building of your dreams suddenly hits the market, we’ll help with the heavy lifting so you can acquire the property and still keep your focus where it needs to be — on ministry.
Land & property
We can help you purchase the land or property for you to use for ministry. Raw land purchases require 50% loan to value (LTV) with a 10-year maximum length, enabling your church to have a vested position in the property and ensuring the church will build soon.
When you come across the perfect building for your ministry, we’ll help you acquire it. Purchasing a building allows for a higher loan to value (LTV) of 75% and longer terms up to a 20-year term loan. Our team will work with you to identify hidden costs and provide you a full project scope of projected expenses.
