The Printed Word was organized in Slidell, Louisiana in 1981 by Jack and Susan Moody. Its purpose was to establish a source of Gospel material for world evangelism. The Printed Word was involved in street evangelism in the New Orleans area, as well as with several missionaries on deputation and on foreign fields. The Printed Word saw the need for good quality Gospel witnessing aids. The first items produced were T-shirts and bumper stickers geared at giving the Christian a means of getting the gospel message out.
Due to health reasons and other circumstances beyond their control, The Printed Word was relocated to Lenoir, North Carolina in 1986. Here they have worked with expanding the outreach to: scripture signs, gospel tracts, booklet printing, church bulletin service, revival fliers, posters, audio tape to CD mastering, CD and tape labels, VHS to DVD conversion, missionary prayer cards, missionary newsletter service, letterheads and envelopes, as well as many other types of printing for missionaries, churches and ministries.
The goal of The Printed Word is to provide a source of printed material at the lowest possible cost to churches, and at no cost to missionaries. The little profit made goes to subsidize the cost of the printing done for missionaries. Please pray that the Lord will continue to provide this avenue of printed material to evangelize the world.
Seeing the need for an avenue for missionaries to access the World Wide Web, in 2000 The Printed Word branched into web hosting and development by establishing Missionary Families.Org.
Missionary Families.Org hosts, develops, and maintains web spaces for Missionaries, Churches and Ministries. Missionary sites are developed at or below cost with the proceeds from the Church sites used to subsidize them. At Missionary Families.Org they offer full service web hosting from site development, domain registration, domain hosting, to full site maintenance and updates.
Moody Family Ministries was established to bring all of their ministries together. Moody Family Ministries was setup to be the main trunk of their ministry keeping the branches together in an orderly fashion allowing them to work all together as well as separately.
In the past several years they have added several more branches to the ministry: MissionaryHelper.org (helping to raise money for mission projects), AV1611Compliant.org (Website locator for websites committed to the truth that the King James Bible, AV 1611 is the pure, inerrant, infallible, preserved word of God to this last generation, where English is the universal language.), StreetPreacherSupply.org (Offering the supplies and equipment for the Publick minister and ministries.), RUSaved.org (The Most Important Question of Your Life: Where Will You Spend Eternity?).
Please pray for Moody Family Ministries as they continue to strive to serve the Lord through their current ministries as well as through any and all doors He opens and the avenues He allows them to go down!
