A community of church librarians where we exchange ideas and learn from each other how to do Church Library Ministry.


Welcome to all Facts & Trends Readers!

The Fall 2017 edition of Facts & Trends magazine features an article by David Francis about the transition of church libraries to centers for disciple making in the lives of their church families. Featured in early summer, click here for pictures of the Immanuel Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky Sending Center launch that took place in May.

Today, we feature the launch of The Serving Center at Central Baptist Church, Decatur, Alabama which is taking place October 22. Eva Nell Hunter is the team leader for The Serving Center. Rob Jackson, pastor, is an outstanding collaborator with The Serving Team. Click here to enjoy the brochure that will be distributed with the bulletin on launch day. Note the list of services on page 2 of the brochure. The new names and the strengthening efforts to support the ministries of these churches is bringing new light on the ministries of these two libraries.

Consider bringing your team to the library training event hosted by Central Baptist Church on November 4, 2017. David Francis will be speaking during the general session and with pastors during breakout sessions on developing a disciple making process. Rob Jackson will also be there to share his experiences with this vital ministry in their church. Librarians, you will find lots of options during the day! Click here for the conference schedule and breakout descriptions. The registration fee is free. To register, click here.
