Loans available to help churches enhance worship spaces

Foundation will help churches make space for missional innovation — with a focus on hospitality, accessibility, mobility, technology and energy efficiency.

The Space Enhancement Loan Program grew out of a partnership among the Foundation, the Western North Carolina Conference, Boundless Impact, and Wesley Community Development Corporation.

With the goal of creating spaces for missional innovation, this program is designed for churches to improve hospitality, accessibility and mobility, as well as update facilities with modern technology, equipment, and energy efficiency to improve ministry programs of the church.
