The CRC Loan Fund makes loans available to Christian Reformed churches in the United States who desire to purchase property, begin new construction, or repair an existing church building or parsonage.
The Loan Fund does not solicit gifts or receive ministry shares. Its only source of funds is investments made by individuals, congregations, classes, and other organizations related to the CRC.
Growth continued at a record pace during 2005-2006. Investments, assets, and net assets all grew significantly.
More important, the demand for loans from CRC churches was so great that new commitments reached an all-time high. Loans totaling nearly $10 million were approved for 19 churches during the year. The Loan Fund was able meet this high level of request but as a result had no funds available for additional loans as of June 30, 2006. Additional investments are needed to meet the continuing demand.
Loans ranged from $10,000 to $1.7 million for projects that included installing a new roof, remodeling an existing facility, and building an entire new facility. Two young churches—Grace Valley in Las Vegas and Living Hope Community in Fox Lake, Wis.—will be building their first worship facilities.
Two larger well-established churches in Brookfield, Wis., and Caledonia, Mich., are building significant additions to their existing facilities. Other churches all over the United States are benefiting from loans they received last year.
