Faithful Servant Books Continuation

BannerStoreFrontI had announced in a previous post that Faithful Servant Books was going to be closing their doors shortly. I received some blessed news last evening that the ministry at Faithful Servant will continue on but in a different format. Please read the announcement below for the details and let’s all support this work

Thank-you to everyone who has expressed their support and offered prayers to our Lord over the last month, when we announced that store closure seemed unavoidable, if a buyer could not be found.

Although there has been no offer to purchase, we have left no stone unturned in trying to find a way forward, as we have witnessed first hand the change in people’s lives as a result of the Lord working through our ministry. We have not only received untold encouragement and moral support from our customers but the general concensus is that a community or region without a Christian resource centre is missing a critical ingredient of its spiritual health.

Having shared those thoughts, we are pleased to share that we believe there may be a viable solution to our dilemma. We plan to formally restructure as a not-for-profit organization.

This will play out in many ways but the central tenet of our viability will be the support of the body of Christ in our region. For our part, we will be reducing costs to the bare-bones – meaning reduced ability to pay market salaries, advertising, rent & bank fees. For your part, this means partnering with us in ministry as the Lord leads you – prayer, purchasing from us, spreading the word through social media, even donating.

Let us all remember that there is ultimately only one answer to the problems besetting us. “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” John 17:3. May we work together so more people hear of this hope.

Please offer a simple prayer for us that God would give us wisdom, discernment and sound advice on how to move forward as a ministry in the body of Christ.
David Ford & Mike Steeves.


One thought on “Faithful Servant Books Continuation

  1. I pray that those of us in the Christian community who recognize the need for the ministry of the Faithful Servant would pray and give support to this ministry. With many leaving the established church they need a non threatening environment to search out spiritual questions. Faithful Servant Book Store provided this over the past two years. There have been searching people, troubled Christians and those just looking for encouragement that have found this through the workers at Faithful Servant over the past two years. We pray this will continue with the prayers and support of concerned believers.
