Since its establishment in 1908, BEMF has been the means by which the Church of Christ family in WA has helped one another to build properties that provide a tangible, visible sign of the presence of Christ in the WA community. Over time, individual and church investments enabled BEMF to finance loans and retain benefits of managing a combined portfolio within the Association. In February 2020 BEMF merged its business with Churches of Christ Financial Services (CCFS) to retain these benefits whilst simultaneously tapping into the national family capabilities.
By doing this, BEMF repositioned itself to consider acting only in exceptional circumstances and as lender of last resort. For information about BEMF please contact The BEMF Board Chair, Werner Soontiens through the COCWA office.
