Grants may take as little as a few weeks or as long as a year or more from start to finish. Factors may include lack of proper documentation, failure of response from references, timing of completion of application with OLCF Board meetings, etc.
We offer extensions, when possible, if the church contacts our office to review the request.
OLCF will only fund churches. It is the responsibility of the church to pay any contractor/vendor associated with the request.
We believe it is the duty of the people of the church to take care of its pastor and parsonage.
Any case requiring immediate consideration would be handled on a case-by-case basis. If the church holds insurance, settlement must be reached prior to contacting OLCF.
