Genesis (Faith-based Organizations)
While many church leaders understand the importance of their role as stewards of the church's funds, very few have a personal relationship with a banker who understands the needs of their church, its vision, and its mission. Genesis is a unique suite of banking solutions designed especially for churches and faith-based organizations.
IBT understands the dynamics of a church and its financial needs, a specialty uncommon in the banking industry. We are sensitive to your unique needs, from information security to cash flow management and facilities financing. We have built on the Genesis platform multiple services to fulfill the financial stability you require and develop a personal relationship for the future.
