“We decided to keep the word “Upscale” in the name of our store, once we took over from the previous thrift store, because we had a loyal following that has continued with our transition to a Bibles For Missions Thrift Center.
We made some changes to the store by adding a “children’s” boutique section, as well as a “men’s” boutique section. We have also found some very talented volunteers that are going to help with selling our vintage, unique items on a few different websites that we believe will in turn bring in more traffic to the store. Overall, I really didn’t know what this adventure would look like at the very beginning. However, I am genuinely appreciative of the friendships and relationships that I have come to have in seeing God work in all of our lives!” ~ Brandie

To reach unreached people groups, World Mission’s network of national partners is the key to success. They are of the people, understanding the culture, the area and their way of life. They can connect and build relationships naturally, eliminating years of training often needed for non-nationals. The tools used are field-tested, up-to-date vehicles for gospel distribution.
World Mission relies on the support of our thrift stores to fund some gospel distribution initiatives. The investment in our ministry allows us to freely dispense the gospel message to those oral-learning people the Holy Spirit is readying.

“While out riding my bike one afternoon, I came across the Bibles for Missions Thrift Center and decided to stop in.
Well, the warm welcome I received upon entering the building made me feel right at home. I really wasn’t looking for any particular item, just a quick look around, and in doing so, I found some really great deals. I knew right then and there that I would become a regular customer.
While talking with the ladies at the checkout counter, I also found out that they all volunteer and accept donations to help provide support for World Mission. So, right here in my own community, I found the best place in town to shop!
The Thrift Center had everything I could imagine, great prices, a warm friendly group of volunteers to greet me every day with a wide variety of items to choose from and a great cause – audio Bibles! So this is why I shop at the Bibles for Missions Thrift Center. ~ Dorothy
