Serving ministries has been in Christian Community Credit Union’s DNA since its founding. They offer not only CDs, but also ministry checking, savings, church property mortgages, equipment loans, construction loans, support for church plants, and more. CMO Aaron Caid says, “Pastors and ministries need to know that there’s a financial institution that not only understands and respects them, but actually re-invests into their growth and impact. With every dollar entrusted, we use it as means to provide affordable financing for churches. We have many members who used to do business with traditional big banks. They found it refreshing and empowering to learn they could instead bank with a biblical institution that understands the unique challenges of ministry.” In addition to providing affordable financing to build churches and help ministries grow, CCCU also donates to missions and Christian charities. As an example, they offer a credit card to ministries and individuals that not only enables you to earn 1.5% cash back with every purchase, but also gives to Christian charities with each purchase. To date, CCCU has give over $6 million to Christian missions and charities. Many Christians now consider alignment with their Christian values to be a priority when choosing their bank. CCCU recently conducted a survey which found that over 30% of 1,300 professed Christians have considered switching banks in the past 12 months. Alignment with Christian values was in the top 3 reasons why. “This research confirms what we were hearing from our own members and ministry partners in that there is an ever-increasing tension with how big banks conduct themselves and what they stand for “, says Nick Lacy, AVP of Marketing who oversaw the research. “It doesn’t need to be this way. We hope all ministry leaders will find CCCU to be a financial partner they can trust, because we support the advancement of the Gospel rather than silence it.”
