About Us

The Galilean
The Galilean Christian Bookstore was founded March 1, 1973. It began as a ministry to the town and the Military in order to serve all God's people, regardless of their denomination. We have been ministering to the area for 44 years.

Many changes have occurred since The Galilean was founded. At that time, the only bible translations were The King James and The Living Bible called The Book. There were no 800 numbers to place orders. Mail order was the only option and it took two weeks to get to us.

Our first employee was Bobbie Stracener, who was a real blessing. As the ministry grew more were people were added. Construction and expansion were constant until after nine years we moved into a larger building with more parking. God has kept us open all these years and we thank Him for this.

We also added more services that improved our ministry's ability to serve our customers. Some examples are:

  • Free gift wrap for items over $5.00
  • A Media Burn Bar while you wait, which gives more selection on Cd's and sound tracks.
  • Teacher supplies which includes Bulletin Board paper, letters, project boards and bulletin Board sets.
  • Professional laminating for up to 24" wide.
  • “Awesome This” allows you to personalize tumblers, pens, journal, key chains, bookmarks and so much more. You may choose from a variety of patterns or use pictures from your phone. This can all be completed while you continue to browse in our store. “Awesome This” is also available online at the following link: You can make your choices and have it waiting for pickup at the store. .
