At Paige’s scholarship presentation, Pastor Brian Licht shared with congregation members how St. Paul had an LCEF loan in the past and what a good experience it had been. LCEF partners with more than 50,000 investors to make the funds available for loans and ministry support. Together, these partnerships have resulted in a total asset portfolio of nearly $1.7 billion and allowed for a distribution of $1.91 million in excess earnings to member districts and the Synod. God has truly blessed the ministry of Church Extension and its supporters!
