Every small town has something that binds its residents together. Minster Bank, which serves small communities throughout western Ohio, is proud to be one of the ties that bind.
Hear more about the bank’s community-first focus from Dale Luebke, President and CEO of Minster Bank, in this video.
A Personal Touch at Minster Bank
“At Minster Bank, we say we can out-local the regional banks and we can out-regional the local banks,” said Luebke. “Minster Bank has all the amenities, products and services, but we can provide it at a community bank level where we know our customers and their families and help them make sound financial decisions.”
With 12,000 customers and locations in Minster, New Bremen, St. Marys, Sidney, Wapakoneta and Vandalia, Ohio, Minster Bank truly knows the meaning of personal service.
“We know about them and we know each other, and so it’s all about being a family here. And that’s not only for employees but for the communities that we’re in,” said Luebke. “We understand their family situations, we try to provide value by providing good financial guidance.”
Serving the Community
Aside from the careful attention each customer receives, Minster Bank gives back to the communities it serves in several ways.
One way is by providing financial education to more than 2,000 students a year in grades K-12 in local schools, which Luebke called “an investment in younger generations.”
This education is tailored to the grade level, and not only instills good financial sense but helps students understand the importance of getting involved in the community.
Another way Minster Bank gives back is through community development partnerships with local cities and villages, which may include helping with infrastructure development or other growth projects.
“We want to be able to help and serve the entire community, whether they’re a customer or not,” said Luebke.
More Ways Minster Bank Gives Back to the Community
Besides sponsoring student educational programs and participating in community events, Minster Bank is proud to support the local community through these initiatives.
- • Canned food drives during November, with donations benefitting local nonprofit organizations.
- • Community Shred-it days each spring and fall to help residents safely dispose of confidential paperwork – for free.
- • Scholarships for local graduating seniors to help further their education.
All of these activities are part of building a great place for residents, Luebke said.
“It’s not about what I do or what our employees do or what the community does, but it’s about what we do together to make a successful community for people to want to live, work and raise their families,” said Luebke.
