Welcome to GRO-FAITH Ministries

 

GRO-FAITH Ministries was formed in 1997, and is an outgrowth of GRAMS of FAITH, a monthly newsletter, and another publication, the GRAMS of FAITH Inspirational Calendar. As a new book was about to make its debut (GRAMS of FAITH—Inspirational Poetry), it was necessary to create an overall name for all publications, and thus, GRO-FAITH Ministries was established with a goal of “publishing the positive.”

Now referred to as a magazine, the monthly publication was developed in July 1980, and the first (four-page) issue was introduced the very next month. It has now grown to an average of 28 pages and continues to tell of God’s goodness as it features church events, community notes, family news, business ventures, and more. It also highlights the gifts and talents of others—writers, poets, artists—and often includes articles written by specialists in different fields. On a few occasions, readers have been able to renew friendships, after having recognized the name or photograph of a long-lost acquaintance in a feature article or on the list of supporters!

Below you will see the cover page of the first issue, a few subsequent anniversary issues, the first full-color issue, the first “people” cover, etc.
