The Center for Faith and Giving

The Center for Faith and Giving provides educational materials and serves as a conduit to other related resources that teach stewardship as a spiritual discipline.

We understand that stewardship is about more than money.  It is about the faithful management of all of the resources and gifts that come into our lives, including, but not limited to the care for the earth; the observance of Sabbath; care for ourselves; care for the Gospel; and the care for our material goods and possessions.

Christian Church Foundation

The Christian Church Foundation’s mission is to educate members, congregations and other manifestations of the church about the stewardship of accumulated resources; serve as a manager of funds owned by churches and entities of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); and facilitate opportunities for planned gifts that will benefit any and all Disciples causes.

The Foundation only invests funds for congregations and institutions/ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The Foundation is unable to invest funds for individuals.

Planned giving offers a wide variety of benefits to you as you plan to accomplish your charitable and financial goals. Benefits include: personal satisfaction in the continued proclamation of Jesus Christ through the specific causes you choose; income tax savings; avoidance of capital gain tax or federal estate tax; opportunity to provide income to yourself, spouse, family or friend with tax benefits to you; reduction in the administrative costs of settling your estate.

Church Extension

In an era when buildings that have housed many congregations for decades no longer fit their ministry needs, Disciples Church Extension Fund partners with Disciples of Christ congregations to help strengthen the stewardship of their financial and capital resources so they are in a better position to do ministry where and how it is most needed.

In short, Disciples Church Extension Fund accepts investor funds from Disciples individuals and congregations, pays a competitive rate of interest, and then lends that money to congregations who seek to be prayerful stewards of their building and capital resources to further Christ’s work in the world.
