SERVE THE WORD MINISTRY

As of July 2019 we have now given away more than 13,000 Bibles through our online retail store at www.crowesmc.com and our local Bible ministry.   We have expanded our STW Ministry to also include our local businesses.  We offer businesses in Battle Creek and in Springfield a free rack full of NKJV and Spanish Bibles and we will refill as needed.   If you are a business and would like us to disperse Bibles at your venue contact us.   We now include the following insert in all our Bibles.  Praise God! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   THE STORY BEHIND THE SERVE THE WORD MESSAGE!

In late August of 2017, while riding my motorcycle home, the Lord God spoke to me as He does daily. But this time it was different. This time, the Lord literally spoke His Words through my voice. Understand, this is not to be confused with "Speaking in Tongues" as that is evidence that one is Baptized in the Holy Spirit; but this was rather God speaking through my vocal cords to speak His mission. Suddenly I belted out,  "Serve the Word"! 

I immediately said to God,  " What is this all about? What does this mean?"

The Lord God immediately said to me, "John 1:1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God".

I said, "Okay God, I get that. Since the Word is God, and if one serves the Word, then one is serving God. But where do I go with this?"

The Lord God then said Immediately, "I want you to put Bibles in the hands of the lost". 

I then answered the Lord and said, "I do Lord. I give out Bibles all the time to the homeless and elderly as well as our congregation at church".

The Lord God then said to me: "I want you to get out and knock on doors, and put a Bible in every home in America"!

My reaction was, "Wow! That's Huge". But I knew that this was a mission that I must follow through with. Praise God. And soon I went to the Lord in prayer, and asked Him, "Lord, do you want me to hand out New Testaments, or complete Holy Bibles?"

The Lord God immediately said to me, "I said, In the beginning was the Word".

I said to Him, "You are right Lord". And within days, God's plan was coming together to put Bibles in the hands of the lost. Starting out in our local community by networking with local  church's. Ultimately to reach the lost around the entire globe! Praise God.


Next, my wife Becky and I contacted several publishers to get price quotes and finally found the right one that would give us the best bulk prices.  God showed me His vision to put packages together for each new church team that signed up.  They would receive tote bags,  rubber stamps and lanyards for identification purposes.

Then my wife and I went to the Lord in prayer on how to fund the project. And as always, the Lord God answered with a huge financial blessing! We've always had a "living on a prayer" attitude with our Motorcycle business, and we knew the power of giving as well as the power of our words.  I told Becky on a Monday that if we sell a UTV we could use that money to fund the Bibles with.  On Wednesday we had a potential buyer and by the following day, it was a sealed deal.  That was how quick things happen when your Faith is placed in Christ Jesus and what He did at the Cross! 

 

So, by the blessing of the Lord, we contacted a publisher and purchased 1000 Bibles and began this Great Mission that the Lord has blessed us with!
