Investing in Ministries and Innovative Leaders
Courageously Doing God's Work in the World.

Partnering in a Spirit-led movement of human flourishing grounded in love, generosity, and belonging.

Strengthening the Church Through a Cycle of Generosity

Wesleyan Impact Partners investors, borrowers, and donors sustain a cycle of generosity that serves the church's mission and grows its impact in the communities it serves.

The cycle of generosity is propelled by impact investing that provides positive returns and funds a lending program that helps churches and nonprofits thrive and by charitable giving that supports ministries, communities, and leaders across the spiritual landscape who are innovating ways that help congregations and communities flourish. Together, we are doing Christ’s loving work, leading our way into a world where all people experience God's love and grace.

As a nonprofit, Wesleyan Impact Partners reinvests all our revenue into the church’s mission, supporting individual churches and nonprofits and sustaining their positive impact on the lives of those they serve.

Lending Impact Story

Called to Be the Hands and Feet of Christ

Building Community, Bringing Hope to Neighbors

Funded by a flexible-term loan from Wesleyan Impact Partners, McKendree-Simms-Brookland United Methodist Church in D.C. renovated homes, expanded their affordable housing ministry, and launched a new daycare, providing much needed support and hope to their neighbors, building community.

McKendree feels Wesleyan Impact Partners is a real partner in a circle of mission and giving, where their loan payments are themselves a way of giving back to the church and growing other ministries.
