50 Years of Impact

Jennifer Hall

Fifty years ago, in January 1968, the Baptist Foundation of Indiana got its start -- with only a few dollars but a very big vision. Today, in 2018, we manage over $7.5 million for organizations and individual investors around the state. God has blessed the Foundation as it has expanded its reach, and our continued growth has enabled dozens of Southern Baptist ministries across Indiana to thrive.

Our mission is a simple one. We believe that there is no other institution that can transform lives more effectively than the local church - no government, business, hospital or university. But most churches need tangible resources to accomplish their goals. So, what happens when a growing church needs to buy land, expand or make improvements to their property? This is where the Baptist Foundation of Indiana helps!

We believe that our calling is to help you achieve your calling. Our goal is to deliver the most cost-efficient, hassle-free loan anywhere. Apply for a loan today and let us help you take your church to the next level with a trusted Southern Baptist financial partner.


We felt going through the Baptist Foundation would be the best resource especially since the interest on the loan goes back into ministry.  The Baptist Foundation of Indiana and Jennifer Hall were very helpful in meeting with us and asking the right questions.  We could not have done it without you.

Rather than banking rules promulgated by commercial lending institutions, the Foundation uses common sense guidelines like church attendance, giving patterns and fair market property values to make loan decisions.  I would like to see more people and churches benefit from this lending source God has established for the church.
