Thinking of getting a loan for your Church?
Securing a loan for your church or ministry can be as challenging as trying to get a camel to go through the eye of a needle. The process is inherently complicated - AND most camels just don't fit...
Some things you need to know:
Whether you're applying for a loan to purchase a church building, to complete renovations/construction work, or to refinance your existing loan on a better rate - there are some things you need to know when it comes to a Church or ministry applying for finance...
1. Your Church "Just Doesn't Fit"
The biggest challenge churches face when it comes to acquiring a loan is being a Church and "not fitting" the standard lending model. Some banks won't even consider an application from a Church or Not-For-Profit.
2. A Lack Of Knowledge Around Church
Believe it or not, the banking sector often does not understand the church and Not-For-Profit market. Many don't know how to review an application from a church or a Not-For-Profit. Some banks even call ACS Financial to help them understand a church loan application.
3. Complex Structures
Churches are also sometimes known for having complex structures which makes securing a loan very difficult. The application process is often lengthy and hindered by negative bankers and lenders but this doesn't mean that it's impossible. You're application just requires a little more finesse.
4. "Rip Off" Fees
Of the few churches who have been able to convince a bank or lender to accept their application, many are being charged extremely high fees/rates/charges that are just unnecessary. Giving your existing loan a renowned ACS Financial Health Check could save you and your church hundreds of thousands of dollars.
