Church Development Financial Services will take the role of assisting the church in sizing any potential debt it might need to incur, and then provide services, either as a broker or agent of the church, to develop various alternative structures and sources for obtaining funds.
Having procured over $500 million of church financing, and with a track record of underwriting success, CDFS principals will help the church understand what it can afford, where the resources are to pay for its borrowing, and to stay within the boundary of scripture regarding debt.
The lending market is tough at best, and even more so for churches. Fewer lenders are lending to churches and those that do have tougher lending criteria than ever before. CDFS will provide expert assistance in obtaining church financing with rates and terms that are most advantageous to the church.
