Who Can Join?
Like every credit union, ECCU is a financial cooperative. Members qualify to join because they share a unifying common bond. For ECCU members, this bond is direct engagement in a qualified evangelical ministry. To become a member of our Christian credit union, you must be affiliated with a qualified evangelical ministry.
Here’s how you can qualify for ECCU membership:
Through your Family
You qualify if you are the spouse, child, parent (including in-laws), sibling (including in-laws), aunt, uncle, cousin or grandparent of an existing ECCU member or employee. All you need is the member’s name and birth date to complete your online application.
Through your Church
You qualify if you attend one of the thousands of qualified evangelical churches, including over 100 denominations. Just provide your church name, city, and state on your online application.
Through your School or University
You qualify if you are a student or alumni of a qualified evangelical school. This includes any school affiliated with groups like the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities or the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
Through your Work
You qualify if you work at a qualified evangelical church, school, or ministry.
