A Lending Partner
When your church mission is critical it is important to have partners who understand your ministry and share the same mission. Partners that can shake your hand, look you in the eye and bow their head and pray for kingdom success.
The Extension Loan Fund shares your mission by stating in it’s corporate bylaws that it exists, “to establish and maintain a revolving loan fund and acquire assets to assist, by loans, grants, or otherwise, THE INTERNATIONAL PENTECOSTAL HOLINESS CHURCH, INC.,” therefore making your church mission and the Loan Fund mission like minded.
Loan approval is essentially a four step process.
The first two steps in the process are the gathering of documents and an assessment of the project. The last two steps is the internal review of the board and the preparation of closing documents to be recorded. The majority of the first two steps are the responsibility of the local church, while the last two steps of the process are the responsibility of the Loan Fund.
To begin the process for your church you may download an application, submit a quick loan inquiry form online or call our Director of Lending Services to tell us about your project. If you are ready to apply for a loan and get a good start to your project, submit the following documents for review and our Director of Lending Services will contact you.
