On Saturday, January 23rd, Faithful Servant Books officially closed its doors after 3 ½ years of being a Faithful Witness to the City of Moncton. The bookstore served as more than a Christian retailer but was held in high regard as a ministry that affected numerous people from all walks of life. Mike Steeves and his staff have been an encouragement to a number of Christians in this city and proclaimers of the gospel of our Lord Jesus to those who had yet to come to trusting Christ as their Savior. We had the privilege of hearing how many were blessed by the ministry and how valuable it was to glorify our precious Savior. We were able to meet many wonderful Christians who were contacts of Mr. Steeves that he had made through the bookstore. Needless to say, this city has suffered a great loss in the closing of this resource center. We pray for our Brother Mike Steeves and thank him for his contribution to the Christian Faith in our great city.
We thought it would be a great idea to have people comment on how Faithful Servant Bookstore and Ministry affected them. We would like to encourage you, our readers, to share any thoughts or leave a comment for others to see.
With the Christmas season fast approaching, Christians in the Greater Moncton Area and beyond should be aware that there are some wonderful gift ideas available in our great city. Whether they are in search of a new bible, Christian books, DVDs, cards for any occasion, Faithful Servant Books has something for you. Purchasing from Faithful Servant Books also helps a ministry devoted to the Greater Moncton Area to provide resources and opportunities to evangelize the lost and equip the saints in their growth of the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please consider visiting Faithful Servant Books and supporting this great work this Christmas season.
Finding Christian Bookstores can be relatively difficult but finding a bookstore that sells great resources and that is run by a couple of faithful Christians who value the Word of God and desire to proclaim Christ to others, well, that’s very rare. We are very fortunate that we have such a bookstore in the Greater Moncton Area. David Ford and Mike Steeves provide our city with some much needed light and we here at this blog truly appreciate their ministry.
Faithful Servant Books has a large amount of used books that they have available onsite. These books range in the categories of theology, bible references, prophecy, Christian living and much more. The selection is not the only great thing. The price on these items is fantastic starting at $3.00 and up. If you are in the Trites Road area, take a moment to stop in to view some of the great titles available.
It is with sadness that I have come to find out that the Faithful Servant Bookstore will be closing by the end of the month of April 2015. Mike Steeves and Faithful Servant have had a positive impact on the Christian community through providing solid Christian resources to the Moncton area but also as a ministry which has helped many people in all sorts of situations. I have heard many positive stories of people who have been affected by the ministry there and it is a terrible loss to the community. Here is the official announcement from the Faithful Servant Website:
Faithful Servant Books has now been operating for 3 years.
Despite a very promising start in our first year, we have been unable to attract enough business to make the store viable. It is therefore with great reluctance that we have decided to wind up the business and close the store, unless a buyer can be found soon.
We aim to stay in operation through Easter until the end of April, however we will not be able to accept special orders beyond Sat 28th March.
Our presence in the region is unique, and we have seen a positive, and sometimes dramatic impact on peoples lives who have patronized our store.
Please pray with us that a buyer can be found to continue the ministry in some form, and please feel free to contact either of us should you know of anyone who may be interested.
Yours, David Ford (Owner) Mike Steeves (Manager)
