Benefits of an IMA

How IMAs Work

Through Investment Management Accounts, professional investment managers are available to manage your ministry’s funds until they are needed for projects in the future. You select the asset allocation model that fits your ministry objectives, and then sit back and watch your investments grow over time. All of the funds remain the property of the depositing ministry and can be withdrawn at any time. Churches and ministries can open an IMA with as little as $10,000.

Why should a Nazarene church or ministry consider an IMA?


You should consider an IMA if your ministry lacks the desire, time, or expertise to actively manage its long-term investment funds. Also, if you have a relatively small amount of long-term investment funds, you may find an IMA less costly than other conventional retail investment options.*
