History

Positive Action for Christ is a nonprofit publishing ministry specializing in Bible studies and curriculum for churches, Christian schools, and homeschools. We began with a single ProTeen club in 1969 at Falls Road Baptist Church in Rocky Mount, NC. There Frank Hamrick taught his youth group with a unique blend of energy and humor, as well as a love for God and His Word. Soon other churches asked if they could use Frank’s lessons, and a fledgling print shop was born. A board formed to govern the ministry, and Positive Action was incorporated in July 1972.

Through the 1970s and 80s, Positive Action grew as our materials were adopted by churches, schools, and other ministries around the world. We believe the Lord has blessed our ministry, spreading our books to all 50 states and over 50 countries. Housed in a renovated school building in Whitakers, NC, our offices now include over a dozen full-time staff members that manage our writing, editing, graphic design, printing, information technology, customer service, and shipping departments.

Our mission is to help teachers magnify the majesty of God. Nothing is more thrilling to us than the chance to encourage pastors, youth workers, school teachers, and homeschool parents in their efforts to reveal God’s glory and grace to others. We look forward to how He will enable us to pursue this work in the years to come.
