About Us

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.

In 2007 Moody Family Ministries was established to bring all of these ministries together. Moody Family Ministries was set up to be the main trunk of the ministries, keeping the branches together in an orderly fashion, allowing them to work all together as well as separately. In 2010 the website www.moodyfamilyministries.org was established.

Moody Family Ministries is a helps ministry providing the means for Christians throughout the world to distribute the good news of the scriptures that Jesus saves.

Moody Family Ministries through its divisions helps provide the ammunition, if you will, to the Christian Soldier fighting on the front line, on both foreign and domestic fields. When secular governments send their armies into various areas, to protect freedom or to help in disasters, they must equip and supply their soldiers. So also must we, as Christians, equip and supply our Christian Soldiers. It is this task the Lord has called us to perform. Moody Family Ministries are Quartermasters for Christ, a Christian supply depot so to speak; gathering much needed supplies and sending them to the troops as they are requested.

Moody Family Ministries provide various means for Churches, Ministries, and Missionaries to obtain tools to help expand or enhance their ministry(ies). These tools include, but are not limited to, printed materials, Bibles, printed shirts, signs, videos, and audio media — using whatever means God allows to reach this lost and dying world with the gospel, the good news that Jesus saves.
