Ziegler Announces Church Financing Transaction: Bella Vista Assembly of God

BELLA VISTA, AR--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - It is an exciting time for Bella Vista Assembly of God parishioners. The local church is constructing a new youth and children's facility to complement their existing space. The facility will feature a junior high size gymnasium, a small theatre-style auditorium, a full functional kitchen and some classrooms.

The church financing is being executed with bonds through Ziegler, a boutique investment firm providing investment banking, asset management and wealth management, as well as alternative investment opportunities for institutional and individual investors.

Jonathan Watson, the senior pastor of the church, stated, "When I came here seven years ago there was only one child in our nursery. Now we can have twenty kids on any given Sunday. Our children's church attendance has more than quadrupled, our youth group averages 30 or more and new young families continue to join us. Our community is changing and we are building this facility to enable us to minister to more souls."
