Lines of Credit

Quick Points

  • Lines of Credit can be used for the purpose of construction, renovation, or for temporary cash flow when the church’s income is uneven.
  • Copies of financial records and attendance history from the past 3 years are to be provided to Church Investors Fund at the time of application.
  • Lines of Credit can be either a “revolving LOC”, meaning they can be drawn upon and paid down more than once; or a “drawn down LOC”, meaning that they can only be drawn upon once.
  • Loans are normally amortized over a period not in excess of 25 years.
  • Loans are secured by a mortgage on your property.
  • A one time origination fee is charged at the time the loan is set up. The loan origination fee on new loans is 0.5% to 1.00%.

  • Interest only payments are due only on the amount that has been drawn.
  • Interest is charged and due once per month.

  • The church submits a Draw Request to Church Investors Fund asking that funds be advanced on the loan to pay these costs.
  • Loan payments generally should not add up to more than 30% of the church’s annual budget.
  • The purpose of a Line of Credit is to give the church additional flexibility in their financial planning.
  • Loans are secured by a mortgage on your property.
