Charity Gospel Tape Ministry
Opening the Door into the Past…
Twenty-five years ago God began working in the hearts of a former Amish man and a Baptist preacher. Mose Stoltzfus and Denny Kenaston both became burdened seeing the lack of spirituality in many churches. Their hearts locked together with a vision to get back to a revived, New Testament, Christ-centered church. With this vision before their eyes, they began Charity Christian Fellowship in 1982.
Five years later revival swept down from heaven. The revival fires burned brightly as the church got right with the Lord. During this time another Mose Stoltzfus and his family started attending Charity. Mose came with a burden to start a tape ministry. The family began taking tapes home after each service to start a library. Soon Gospel Tape Ministry came alive. The ministry operated out of Tape Mose’s shop with his children as personnel. People began to order more tapes. Biblical preaching was heard in many homes.
In 1990 the tape ministry was renamed Charity Gospel Tape Ministry. In October of 1994, it moved to the church building, acquired a new director and personnel, and continued to expand.
Stepping into the Present...
In 2001 the tape ministry was moved to where it is now located in the Ephrata Business Center, Ephrata, PA. We have several full time, as well as a handful of part-time volunteers. Mark Brubaker is serving as administrator of the ministry. Nathan Zeiset serves as computer technician and Jason Smith is the production manager.
We receive phone calls from many parts of the U.S. and Canada, and occasionally from other countries. Orders also arrive in the mail from all over the world. In past years we have sent out as many as 250,000 messages in one year.
With the introduction of the website in 2002, the number of messages downloaded has steadily increased over the past five years. Currently there are approximately 45,000 messages downloaded annually from the website. You will find on our website a complete listing of our messages. We also offer messages on CD, cassette tape and MP3 CD. Transcriptions of our sermons and a catalog are also available.
We offer all our tapes, CD’s, and MP3 CD’s free of charge. However, we are a donation based ministry and therefore rely on the freewill offerings of God’s people.
Our most popular set, The Godly Home, is also available on DVD. It is loaned out to churches or groups desiring to view it together. This is a very good way to reach friends with the gospel and those to whom you desire to minister. Brother Denny has a very thorough presentation of the biblical vision of child training. If you are interested, you may contact the tape ministry through the contact information below.
Our goal is to provide sound, biblical teaching in an age of compromise and apostasy. It is our desire to be an encouragement to those who are sincerely following Jesus. We also desire that the messages would bring a tremendous heart change to seeking souls.
We want the Lord Jesus to be in charge of this ministry. We desire to always stay in the center of God’s perfect will. We want to not only exalt Him as our Savior, but also as our Lord. He deserves our love and practical obedience as we work to build His kingdom.
To Him be all the honor, glory, and praise.
