“When I learned of KMF, the certificate of participation helped me express my 'faith in action' to help a church. I was serving in local and district roles of the church. The program had comparable interest rates; it was a safe and secure place to keep emotional funds (inheritance) over a period of time. This was exactly what I wanted to do with it, help it grow and be valuable to a church. I put my faith into action, expressed the serving for local and district conference, got comparable interest rates, and it was a safe and secure place to keep emotional funds.”
- Helen Jones
