We're bidding a fond farewell this month to Bill Siegrist, who began serving the Church Extension Fund in 1988. It's an interesting moment to reflect on CEF's history, because it was established exactly 100 years before Bill started his ministry here.
A District Convention resolution in 1888 created the Church Extension Fund to provide loans to congregations. Since then, CEF has provided consultation and low cost funding for Texas congregations to build and expand.
Today, more than 11,500 investors like you make the Texas District Church Extension Fund possible. With more than $180 million in assets today, CEF is presently assisting 130 congregations throughout Texas with loans to help expand the Kingdom.
