Thank You, LCEF

Posted on Jan 03, 2022 by Mark Muehl - Funding the Mission

“What a wonderful surprise!”

This was my reaction when I learned that Rev. Bart Day, the CEO of Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) and the keynote speaker for our 2nd annual VIP event, offered a matching challenge for all donations to the event last August. Here is Mark with TJ Mattick, the LCEF representative deployed in Indiana with the “big check” of $27,109. We are not sure if Mark was able to fit it through the bank’s drive-thru tube…

LCEF has been a strong partner for Lutheran education in Northeast Indiana, and this creative match is only the most recent avenue in a portfolio of opportunities for education. Not only does LCEF provide needed bridge and longer-term financing for construction and renovation projects at our schools and churches, but they can also provide cash flow stability with lines-of-credit. Looking for investment opportunities? You will be hard-pressed to find higher-paying and safer CD options than what LCEF has available. Just talking with TJ will brighten your day, for sure.

We can’t wait to see how LCEF will bless the Synod community next. We also can’t wait for VIP 2022 when we will be hosting Mollie Zeiger Hemmingway from The Federalist, Fox News, and Hillsdale College at the wonderful Kruse Plaza north of town on I-69.
