LCEF is your Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod partner providing loans, investments and ministry support. "I consider it a joy to meet with committees and congregations interested in furthering the Lord’s work in their communities," said Carole White, Lutheran Church Extension Fund District Vice President - Iowa East and West. 

"In Iowa District West for the last triennium, LCEF has provided 17 new loans totaling over $5,088,000 thanks to faithful investors and borrowers partnering together to make a difference in things eternal.

Over the last 3 years, Iowa District West received $135,343 in operating results from Lutheran Church Extension Fund. This earnings distribution is made available to districts and the Synod each year that LCEF is profitable.  The amount given back to each district is based upon a 5-way average consisting of the following components: loans to congregations compared to total congregations, operating income, income producing assets, investors as a % of confirmed members and capital-to-asset ratio. 

LCEF was blessed to provide Iowa District West with these extra funds for new mission starts, supporting congregations and church workers, missionaries in our district, and many other outreach initiatives."
