ECCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative institution. ECCU is an alliance of Christian churches, parachurch ministries, schools, workers, and individuals. While ECCU’s mission extends far beyond banking, they do provide a wide range of financial services and resources for both ministries as well as individuals affiliated with ministries. Their ministry banking resource has not always been called Evangelical Christian Credit Union. They began in 1964 as the Conservative Baptist Credit Union with a mission to serve ministers and missionaries of Conservative Baptist churches and organizations. In 1984, a merger with the Association of Christian Schools International Credit Union created ECCU. Since then, their staff has grown from 27 employees to 140. Today, Evangelical Christian Credit Union is one of the largest credit unions on the West Coast with approximately $900 million in assets and over 12,000 members. ECCU is headquartered in Brea, California.
