Evangelical Christian Credit Union

ECCU is a credit union designed to assist those in ministry. They offer accounts and banking services that may be beneficial to you. Our office has accounts with them, as do several of our missionaries.

You can visit their website or look at their brochure to learn more about their missionary banking features.

A benefit in using ECCU is that it’s members pay no fees for international Visa® over-the-counter cash withdrawals or ATM withdrawals (international or domestic) from an Ambassador Checking account when using a Visa® Gold check card. (An international transaction fee of 1 percent imposed by Visa® will still apply, and some merchants may opt to charge withdrawal fees.)

You may not be aware of Banking from the Field, ECCU’s blog for missionaries, but they’ve recruited several active missionaries to write regular posts. To check this blog out or to submit banking questions, visit
