An earthquake, a fire, Hurricane Hugo and the ravages of time took their toll on historic St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Charleston, South Carolina. But ultimately these proved no match for a determined congregation and the Mission Investment Fund.
An MIF loan supplemented successful fundraising efforts for a large-scale renovation. Together, St. Matthew’s and MIF were able to restore the magnificent sanctuary—not to mention history itself.
Restored worship spaces like this one are the catalysts for expanding the capacity for ministry.
