New owners of Family Christian Stores commit 100% of profits to Christian ministry

Family Christian, the nation’s largest Christian retail chain with 280 stores in 36 states, has announced that its management team and three Atlanta-based Christian businessmen have purchased the company. Family Christian is an important vendor of Wesleyan Publishing House products.
Previously, Family Christian had a policy of donating 10% of its profits to Christian charities. Under the new ownership, Family Christian’s pledge will be to donate 100% of its profits. Family Christian’s central mission has always been to provide ministry resources for Christian communities. The new owners and policies open the door for even greater impact, providing greater financial support for Kingdom causes, especially ministries serving widows and orphans in the U.S. and overseas.
“The management team and our investors are buying Family Christian because of our shared belief that the company is uniquely positioned to be both a best-in-class Christian retailer and also significant source of financial support to help those in need,” said Cliff Bartow, President and CEO of Family Christian. “We believe it’s the providence and sovereignty of God that we have met and now partner with our new co-owners, who share our passion and calling to Christian giving.”
