We simplified the name of the Church Investment Loan Fund to the Investment Fund. This change was made to simplify our communication and reflect the variety of Anabaptist organizations for which we provide financing.The Investment Fund simultaneously blesses investors, borrowers, and the people served by EMM workers around the world. Here's how it works ...
... for investors People with a heart to further the work of the church invest some of their savings in the Investment Fund and receive interest income in return.
... for borrowers Anabaptist churches and church-related agencies in Pa. who are purchasing or renovating facilities borrow money from the Investment Fund at favorable adjustable annual rates (currently 4.5% for new mortgages).
... for mission workers The Investment Fund produces $400,000 of income per year for EMM. People around the world encounter Christ through EMM mission work, funded in part by a portion of the interest income from Investment Fund loans.
Here's the back story:
The Investment Fund has been providing a return to believers and furthering the expansion of church ministries since 1959. The fund is administered by a group of church, business, and professional directors, including respected bankers and financial managers from within the Mennonite community.
“When I was serving on the field, I experienced the gracious support of EMM staff who were based here in PA. Now as an office staff member, I see for myself the love and care for field workers that envelops the administrative services and well-being care generated from this office. I also observe the cultivated vision to cling to a kingdom narrative in the midst of pain and uncertainty, and a passion to follow God in relational obedience.” — Jessica Herlein, previous worker and current CAO staff member
“We are ‘to go into all the nations’ and spread the freedom of Jesus Christ. EMM helps to send us out; they help us fulfill Jesus’ commandment. The training they give is critical to avoid damaging other cultures, and damaging yourself.”
— Zeke Zimmerman, previous worker in Guinea-Bissau
