About Grace Financial

Today, we remain passionately committed to God’s mission for the world and the Charis Fellowship. From our offices in Winona Lake, Indiana, our dedicated team serves our borrowers and investors with a unique blend of financial expertise and ministry knowledge in the following ways:


We make financing easy and accessible for churches and ministries. We provide competitive rates and terms on loans delivered through a highly relational and missional engagement process.


We are an expert resource for financial stewardship, helping people and organizations care for their money well while contributing to Kingdom growth.


We have a rich history in the Charis Fellowship, and we create opportunities to bring churches, ministries and members together to accomplish more than each can do on their own.
