While Hope Partnership focuses on strengthening congregations for mission through leadership development and ministry planning resources, our partner, Disciples Church Extension Fund, helps to strengthen Disciples congregations for mission through their capital planning and funding services, which include loan, investment, building planning, relocation and capital fundraising services. As independent but related ministries, Hope Partnership and Disciples Church Extension Fund report together to the wider Church.
