We're Seeking Christian Partners
In Philippians, Paul talked about his partnership with the Philippians in the gospel enterprise. Like him, we are seeking like-minded followers of Christ who will partner with us. Some will have a career with Christians. Some will simply shop at Christians. We value our partnership with you to bring and keep Christian books, resources, and Bibles in Northwest Arkansas!
The easiest way to partner with Christians in impacting Northwest Arkansas is to like and share our social media posts. We have over 3,000 followers on social media. Those 3,000 followers average over 150 contacts each, but let's cut that in half to be safe. If 10% of our contacts on social media shared our posts with 10% of their social media contacts (assuming 75), we'd reach ten times as many people, and that's a conservative estimate. Our social media links are below.
Another way you can partner with Christians to impact Northwest Arkansas is to teach a class. We offer our community room to groups for those classes at no additional fee. We even have ways you can get paid for your partnership to impact Northwest Arkansas for Christ. Fill out the form below if you'd like more information.
Sometimes partnership is financial. Of course, just shopping at Christians is an investment in keeping Christian books, resources, and Bibles in Northwest Arkansas. However, we sometimes have the opportunity to accept microloans and equity investments. We are not currently seeking or asking for equity investments, but we'll listen to any offer you might have.
We are offering a limited number of short term microloans at up to 20% of our net sales for the trailing twelve months. The interest we are currently paying is double the trailing twelve months inflation rate of 5.3%, which results in an APR of 10.6%. The term of the loan varies but is capped at one month per $100 loaned (i.e., a $1,000 loan would be repayable in no more than ten monthly installments).
We do not accept loans from just anyone. If you'd like to learn more about investing in your local Christian bookstore and in other Christians in the area, please fill out the form below.
The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. You can partner with us by working at Christians Bookstore! Here are several job opportunities.
Freelance Devotional Writer
Description: Write 350-500 word devotionals for publication online and in print. You have total content control for anything you submit, but our editor may make adjustments before publication. We may suggest or request specific topics for your devotional, but you have the autonomy to decline. Work from home, the beach, the lake, or anywhere else you'd like. Must be a resident of Northwest Arkansas (or a 25 mile radius of our main location in Rogers).
Experience: Previous writing experience preferred. Must submit samples for review (and for which you could be paid) to apply.
Pay: $0.01 per word.
Contract Group Facilitator
Description: Facilitate a small group study at our Rogers location. You choose the study you lead. We may suggest or request a specific study, but you have the autonomy to decline. Must be able to attend every week during the study, usually ranging from six to ten weeks in duration. Must be willing to recruit in addition to our efforts to find participants. Must be a resident of Northwest Arkansas (or a 25 mile radius of our main location in Rogers).
Experience: None necessary, but previous teaching experience preferred (i.e. school, Sunday School, small group, etc.)
Pay: $11.00 per session
Description: Help us get Christian resources into the community. You have complete autonomy in how to go about doing that. You could start a book club and enroll members, sell one of our book subscriptions, and even go door to door if that's what you'd prefer to do. Work from home, the lake, or anywhere else you'd like. Must be a resident of Northwest Arkansas (or a 25 mile radius of our main location in Rogers). This is a great side-hustle opportunity.
Experience: None required, but a good working knowledge of Christian resources and categories of Christian books is very helpful.
