What is Calvary Publishing?
Calvary Publishing (CP) is a non-profit ministry of Parker Memorial Baptist Church, Pastor Dr. Jim Green. CP prints and publishes books, booklets, tracts, prayer cards, fliers, etc. to promote and encourage Baptists to write and publish books and other related material. CP prints at cost because it is a ministry and not a business.
CP strives to provide the most cost effective printing solutions for all of its customers. In order to do this:
- Some projects are printed and assembled in-house
- Some projects printing is out-sourced, while the finishing (trimming, folding, etc.) is done in-house
- Some projects are completely out-sourced and shipped directly to you
To continue to provide these top-quality and inexpensive services, Calvary Publishing asks you to please consider a love offering in addition to the cost of your project.
CP is operated by Bearing Precious Seed missionary and printer, Mark Chartier. Bro. Chartier is supported solely by love offerings on printed projects and monthly missionary support.
What are the goals of Calvary Publishing?
- To be a blessing to Independent Fundamental Bible Believing Baptist people.
- To encourage Baptists to write.
- To bring honour and glory to God in all that we publish.
- To resurrect the writings of our ancient Baptist History.
- To prove and stand on the Baptist succession from the time of Christ.
- To firmly stand on the inspiration and preservation of the Word of God and Baptist Doctrine.
- To continue to promote Baptist History and Baptist Doctrine.
Hello, my name is Mark Chartier. I came to the realization of my sin as a young boy, and remember the day that my mother sat down with me and showed me from the Bible how I could have my sins forgiven and not go to hell. In simple faith and the fear of the Lord, I fled from the wrath of God, and trusted in God’s Son to forgive me of my sins through His death, burial and resurrection.
At the age of 20, after getting back into church, I met Nickole. She started coming to Church with me, and one Wednesday night, after raising her hand that she was not sure she would go to Heaven, she was lead to the Lord by the pastor’s wife. That was in September of 2000. Soon after her salvation we felt it to be the will of God for us to be joined together in marriage. On July 14, 2001 we were joined in marriage at the Bible Baptist Church of Owosso, MI. Soon after our marriage, we had a desire to draw closer to God and went to Parker Memorial Baptist Church to attend the Lansing Baptist Bible Institute. On June 14th, 2004, God called me to full time service. Over the next few months of seeking God’s will, He led me to work with the Bearing Precious Seed and Local Church Bible Publishers ministries.
I quit my full time job and began working for the Lord. About a year into my service, Calvary Publishing was started, and the Lord has led me to be involved in this ministry along with the others. God has given me the ability to operate many different aspects of the ministry at Parker. I am not necessarily out in the limelight, but I am thankful for whatever the Lord has for me to do.
We appreciate everyone allowing us to print for them through Calvary Publishing. As you may know, I do not make any money off of the printing that I do. I completely rely on love offerings, and monthly support from God’s people. All that I ask from everyone is that you honestly pray and ask God what He would have you to do and give, and I will trust that it is the will of God for my life that you do what He tells you to do.
While visiting to fill the pulpit at Wolverine Baptist Church on December 20th, 2015, the Lord placed a burden on my heart to go and help this Church. I started feeling a desire in my heart to fulfill the need of a pastor. Up to this point in the ministry I have not been seeking to be a pastor. I have had peace with working in my Local Church as a missionary printer and youth director. But, as I prepared to go preach and while I was at Wolverine Baptist, I felt God pulling on my heart for the Church family, and the need they had of a pastor. After much prayer, seeking God’s will and council with my pastors we came and candidated at WBC. On February 21, 2016 I preached and the WBC voted us to become their pastor.
We are continuing to work as Missionaries with the Bearing Precious Seed, Local Church Bible Publishers and Calvary Publishing ministries as well as fulfill the call to pastor in Wolverine MI.
After 17 years of marriage God has blessed us with a beautiful baby girl named Hannah Rose Chartier. We truly are thankful to God for all His blessings!
