Stifel bankers have many years of experience in lending to churches nationwide – more than the combined church lending experience of most of today’s national specialized church lenders.
Stifel bankers have structured church financings/loans for many types of organizations – from multi-million-dollar mega-campuses to small country churches., Stifel bankers have represented some of America's largest churches, including Saddleback Community Church, Vineyard Community Church of Cincinnati, EagleBrook Church, Hunter Street Baptist Church, Northridge Church, and many others. But equally important are the smaller neighborhood churches. All are great organizations impacting their communities.
What Stifel banker experience means to your organization is that our bankers understand your plans, your financial statements, your specific business challenges, and your organization's dreams. There is no learning curve when you apply for church financing/loan with Stifel. Being a national underwriter of churches allows us to transfer and apply our knowledge to your organization's project.
