CEO CORNER: GROWING WITH PURPOSE
10/1/2020

In our 70th year of helping members achieve their financial goals, I am happy to announce the merger and data conversion with Motor City Co-op Credit Union has been successfully completed. Christian Financial is now more than 61,000 members strong with nearly  $700 million in assets.
 
On September 14, Motor City Co-op members were successfully converted into Christian Financial’s data systems. We are elated to finally be one credit union in every sense of the word! I would like to thank our staff for all their hard work assisting members to make this transition as smooth as possible. This process was another reminder for all of us to “Think Member” and live out our core values.
 
This merger is a “win-win” for both Motor City Co-op and Christian Financial members. Motor City Co-op members benefit from an expanded tri-county branch and ATM network, additional product and service offerings, business account services, merchant processing and an in-house investment representative; while Christian Financial members benefit from additional branch and ATM locations in Roseville, Detroit and Clinton Twp.

Both our credit unions have a rich history in metro Detroit with a long record of serving our communities. We plan to maintain and further that commitment as we grow.

Our members are the heart of our business and our purpose for all that we do. Thank you, Motor City Co-op members for your confidence and trust. You continue to inspire us to accomplish more. We look forward to serving you into the future and are excited for our journey together.
 
 

EVERY VOTE COUNTS | Support Credit Unions this November 3

As a credit union member, you have chosen a credit union for your financial services because you find value in the “not for profit, not for charity, but for service” motto we adhere to. Our member-owned cooperative model allows us to offer many of the benefits our members enjoy, including low cost loans and higher interest savings accounts. However, many members do not realize how much local, state and national elections impact their credit union.
 
As we approach another election season, I encourage you to use your voice and your vote to make a difference for credit unions and members.
 
Looking for more information on credit union issues and the candidates that support them? Our credit union trade organization, The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) educates members on credit union issues and candidates in your area at creditunionsvote.com.
