The objectives and activities of the organization I recently led were comparable to those of Legacy; we went on a similar journey with our staff, board and denominational leadership. Prayer-filled collaboration is paramount to accomplishing the conference’s missional objectives. Our efforts are for His glory.”

CCMBC Investments, One Year Later

As you know, on August 30, 2019, CCMBC completed a reorganization of our long-standing deposit program and your accounts now operate under our new company, CCMBC Investments Ltd. We are pleased to say that the transition to CCMBC Investments was a success, and over this past year CCMBC Investments has been operating efficiently and effectively.

We are so thankful to all our account holders for their patience and understanding during our transition. A special thanks to those account holders who have invested with us post-reorganization and have been gracious and flexible while working with our new investment process and exempt market dealer, Capstone Asset Management. If you have not yet invested in your accounts since our reorganization to CCMBC Investments, and would like to, please do not hesitate to contact our office to find out how (email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone: 1-888-669-6575).

COVID-19 and CCMBC Investments

The year 2020 brought changes to every aspect of our lives. As we all learned to adapt to our new normal during the COVID-19 lockdowns, CCMBC Investments adapted quickly and continued to offer support to our account holders and our MB churches, specifically those churches who hold mortgages with us. In March, we sent an email update to our account holders about how COVID-19 was affecting CCMBC Investments. If you did not receive an email update from us, please let us know by emailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that we can add your email address to our mailing list. We hope to communicate by email more frequently in the days ahead, so it is important for us to have a current email on file for each of our account holders. A copy of the email sent in March can be found on our website at www.ccmbclegacyfund.com/news.

Since March, we have been pleased with the performance of our investments. On the mortgage side, we have found many churches have been able to maintain their giving income. It is important for you to note that even if we have offered a loan payment deferral, deferral is not the same as forgiveness. Interest is still accruing on these loans and offering payment deferrals will not affect your rate of return. In addition, our mortgage loans are secured on title against the physical asset.

Excess funds that are not immediately required for mortgage loans are invested according to our guidelines and as governed by our staff and board. These funds are invested with a focus on capital preservation and have performed in line with how we would expect them to in a time of economic downturn.

Our account holders have seen a steady rate of return and no reduction in principal balance over the last six months.

July 1 Interest Rate Change

Consistent with prior years, and now as outlined in our Offering Memorandum, our rates did not change suddenly during the economic hardships, and your investments continued to earn a rate of 2.90% until the 6-month term ended on June 30. Our rates are always subject to change on January 1 and July 1 of each year. The new rate for July 1, 2020 to Dec 31, 2020 is 1.40%. This is based on the Bank of Canada overnight lending rate, plus 1.15%. We trust you will find this is a reasonably competitive rate for an investment that is not locked in, has no term and no fees.

Ministry Partners

We would like to thank every one of you for being ministry partners with us. You may not feel like you are actively participating in ministry when you invest your funds with us, but that is precisely what you are doing! Through your investments, we can provide funding to our MB Churches, camps, schools and pastors, often allowing for opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. We wish we could share every story with you! That is not always possible, but here is a short comment from one of our pastors:

We had the opportunity to serve in a community that has historically been very difficult for an established church to thrive. CCMBC worked to help us achieve our goal of moving into [this community]. This has enabled us to get to know people in a deeper way. Our mission in life is to help people see the hope that is in Jesus. One of the best parts of that is the relationships we form and then getting to learn from those we meet, and all grow together. Lord willing, we look forward to many years of BBQ’s, kids’ camps, and other community building events with our new neighbours.

Thank you for investing to make a difference!

 

Blessings,

Bertha Dyck
Chief Financial Officer
