Dear Valued Members and Friends,
Jim Collins, author of Good to Great, said, “There is nothing I find more exciting than picking a question that I don’t know the answer to and embarking on a quest for answers.” The one question that’s been on my mind for some time now is, “What can only America’s Christian Credit Union do?”
It occurs to me that as a Credit Union in the Wesleyan Holiness tradition, rich in history, deep thinking, and motivated by a commitment to restoring God’s image in all people, we are so much more than a traditional financial institution. Just as our forefathers who fought to make a difference in the cultural issues of their day following the model of Christ, we believe that ACCU most reflects the image of God when we take bold steps to engage culture, making a positive impact on society. We care for the well-being of God’s people here on earth not just financially, but holistically, so we can accelerate Kingdom impact together before Christ returns.
As I reflect on these past nine months, I feel humbled and proud of the work ACCU has done to strengthen communities and enhance the services, resources and solutions we provide to churches, ministries and families nationwide. Coincidentally, this season also caps our 60th year as a part of our members’ lives. We are truly blessed to have members like you who have played an instrumental role in Kingdom-building endeavors, and who have partnered with America’s Christian Credit Union in pursuit of our continuing mission to “reach, serve and teach.” As we approach Year 61, it is with great joy that I can also report a very successful 3rd quarter in all of our key performance indicators. In addition, our staff resolve to “live the mission” and make continuing headway toward Stronger Futures, Ministries, Communities, and Families is as steadfast as ever. I encourage you to stay tuned for exciting developments ahead as we look beyond the crescendo of our 60-year celebration. To God be the Glory!
At a time when everyone is busy and people demand more from their financial institutions, we will continue to take action to improve members’ lives, support communities, and ensure that we remain faithful to the CALLER and our Calling to further God’s work. Thank you for your membership and participation. Words cannot fully express how extremely grateful I am to each and every one of you, without whom, ACCU would not be what it is today: A Financial Partner for Cultural Impact.
Sincerely in Christ,
