About-

Can you imagine millions of acres of grain ripened for the harvest with thousands of laborers seeking to gather in the crop by hand? What would happen if a large shipment of combines were suddenly delivered? We know the grain ripe unto harvest represents those in several thousand people, ethnic, and language groups who have not yet heard the Gospel message. But what if those combines were businesses that could be used as vehicles and platforms for building relationships? Galtronics is one such business and its story will both encourage and enlighten you as to how a man and a woman turned an idea into a global business for the express purpose of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We hope by the time you finish reading this book you will better understand the potential of using your profession and/or business as a great combine to bring in the harvest.

Endorsements & Reviews-

The Galtronics Story presents a living picture of the desire of our Lord for every Christian in business. It shows how Ken and Margie allowed the Holy Spirit to lead from the beginning to the end, from the alpha to the omega. When we make the claim, "To God be the glory, great things He has done," it's with the emphasis on "He." This book really is about doing His work His way. --Bob Hodel, Entrepreneur and Businessman, Bakersfield, CA

In depth studies of the genesis, growth and challenges of Missionary Corporations are rare. Bill Goheen has done a great service by capturing the Galtronics story from its start through the mid 1990's. The "Vision, Valley, Verity" framework Bill has adapted from Oswald Chambers to describe Ken and Margie Crowell's journey fits my life experience. Reading this book has encouraged me to greater faithfulness. --Gary Ginter, Entrepreneur and Businessman, Chicago, IL

With the arrival of the new millennium has come a fresh opportunity to think through how Christians approach the cause of world missions. The practice of sending missionaries from the West and Two-Thirds World will most likely continue with the numbers of missionaries increasing from the latter. The self-supporting or "tentmaking" approach will continue to gain momentum, especially as a means of reaching people located in more difficult to reach areas of our world. Therefore, reading about the victories and trials faced by Ken and Margie Crowell and their company is an excellent case study presented in The Galtronics Story. It is an important read for mission executives and missionaries as well as Christian investors of funding for the cause of world evangelization in our time. John E. Kyle, Senior V.P. of the EFMA; Former IVCF Urbana Director; Former CEO of Mission To The World, Monroe, NC
