Because of what we do together, people around the world are receiving and understanding for the first time ever God’s good news, the Scriptures. In the midst of our busy lives, the impact of what we are doing can get lost. Come get charged up again! Reserve your calendar for our mission event on Wednesday evening, May 3, 2017.
Mart Green, nationally known businessman, will be a key part of our 2017 Mission event here in Concordia, Missouri. Mart Green began his retail career in the home of his parents as a youth. With $600 his family started Hobby Lobby in their living room, which is now a chain of over 600 arts and crafts stores. He is the Chief Strategy Officer for the Green Family Businesses and is actively involved with Hobby Lobby, where he serves as Board Chair.
In 1981, Mart established Mardel, a chain of Christian and educational supply stores. Headquartered in Oklahoma City, Mardel has 35 stores in seven states.
In June 2002, visionary Green founded…
In January 2005, Christian Retailing named Mart Green one of the Top Fifty People who have most impacted and shaped Christian retailing in the last half century. In 2008, he was also awarded the Jim Carlson Christian Bookstore of the Year Award by the Christian Book Association (CBA) for setting standards of excellence in the industry.
In 2010, Mart began a journey to help build a Digital Bible Library through an alliance called Every Tribe Every Nation. Its goal is to centralize, digitize, standardize and finalize the Bible texts of the world. This will make it easier for audio, video, mobile and print-on-demand ministries to get the Bible texts that they need.
It is Mart’s belief that by 2033 95% of the world will have a complete Bible, 99% of the world will have a New Testament, and 100% will have at least 25 chapters.
A native Oklahoman, Mart and his wife, Diana, have enjoyed over 30 years of marriage. They have 4 adult children and 4 grandchildren.

While we are celebrating 500 years of the Reformation, the Nsenga people of Zambia have had the New Testament for less than one year. We have to encourage people to take interest in this major anniversary. The Nsenga people eagerly gathered and danced in celebration of this first-ever gift.
As one Nsenga man said, “The Nsenga people were deprived of their language. They were forced to experience God and know about God in a foreign language.” Not any more.
What do they see that we don’t?
