Our Mission & History

National Covenant Properties equips Covenant churches and individuals to help grow the Kingdom of God through investments and loans that drive ministry like no other resource.

National Covenant Properties (NCP) supports growth of local and regional ministries by connecting mission-minded investments to Kingdom-expanding projects. We understand that fruitful ministry requires facilities that are both inviting and effective. So, we bring inspired coaching and appropriate loans to Covenant congregations and other Covenant organizations that are seeking to improve their facilities.

Through a deep understanding of the challenges and changes of ministry, a warm personal customer service, and quality investments NCP is a reliable partner well beyond the date an investment is made or a loan is signed. Our partnership serves individuals, congregations and organizations who share our commitment to Kingdom-building, today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.

Our Vision Statement

We aspire to become the financial partner of choice for mission-minded investors, churches, and organizations affiliated with The Evangelical Covenant Church, as they grow Kingdom ministry.

Our Values

In everything we do, our staff strives to be caring, passionate, trustworthy, patient, knowledgeable, wise, and approachable.

Our History

We’ve been serving member churches and affiliated organizations of The Evangelical Covenant Church since our founding in 1970. National Covenant Properties currently provides more than $268 million in loan commitments to more than 270 Covenant projects. Funds for these loans are obtained from NCP’s sale of investments to members and Covenant churches.

The Evangelical Covenant Church is a movement of more than 850 congregations in the United States and Canada who gather around the central truth of the Bible: People matter to God. Set in motion in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, today The Evangelical Covenant Church is a growing, multi-ethnic, intergenerational mosaic of churches with ministry partnerships in nearly forty countries. The Evangelical Covenant Church’s partnerships aim at seeing even more people engage in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ in a more caring and just world.

When you sense God calling you toward program or facility growth, you need a ready partner. We’re here for you, so that, together, we help grow God’s Kingdom.

“NCP provided personalized consultation, specific to our ministry, at every step of our building search. They knew which questions to ask to which people and gave us a sense of security that our lender was acting in our best interest.”

“Hearing ministry stories from NCP helps me as an investor realize that yields on an investment at NCP are much more than financial growth. My investments at NCP contribute toward bringing Jesus into the world in other ways my giving just can’t provide.”

Damon Woods
NCP investor

“NCP is a ministry and ministry is different from a bank. We couldn’t have built our church without them. People have come to Christ because we have a loan for a building, and they walked into it. That wouldn’t have happened without NCP.”

Andy Tilly
Executive pastor Westmoore Community Church

“When I called to report the death of my father, I didn’t expect the person on the other end of the phone to know him by name. Thank you for taking the time to share in our grief. My sister and I appreciated your kindness and service through settling our fathers estate.”
