Upon succession by current leadership in 2002, the church was financially overextended.  The 2008 economic crash greatly affected our church.  We decided to be proactive in contacting our first mortgage trustee to work through these difficult issues. Mark Young and team worked diligently and willingly met with my church leadership to honestly and directly discuss issues while both parties worked to come up with a resolution that benefited all. Today, by God’s grace, our church is flourishing and has risen to meet the challenges before us.

It is so comforting to be getting accurate, concise, information about important things.  When you are educated and well informed, it comes across as “confidence” and what agent and/or investor does not want to hear that? Your staff is a “notch above” in that you have hired more of the quality like those who have been with TMI for a LONG time. Sure makes going to work a lot more enjoyable when you have a crew that knows very well how to help you right the ship
