ECCU History

The First 50 Years


Our story begins in 1964 with the founding of Conservative Baptist Credit Union, which merged in 1984 with the Association of Christian Schools International Credit Union (founded in 1966) to create ECCU.

We begin our second 50 years as a growing alliance of more than 10,000 people and organizations who are demonstrating and declaring the gospel in more than 130 countries around the world. Our Christian credit union currently operates with a staff team of 200 people serving our members from headquarters in Brea, California and a regional office in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We offer Ministry Banking, Missionary Banking and Personal Banking to our Christian credit union members.
