In all we do, we are striving to glorify the Lord and edify the believer.
New Creation Gifts is an arm of In His Service Ministries. This ministry is committed to teaching salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, the good news of the Kingdom of God, and the present day ministry and indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God in the believer; that God’s Word is eternal and true and is “yea and amen” for those who will believe Him.
In His Service Ministries was started in New York City in 1988 by Michael Plunkett. After six years of street evangelism ministry and working as a part time church financial administrator, he and his wife welcomed a miracle. After several miscarriages, a talented doctor and six years of believing God for a child and standing on the Word, their first daughter was born – an answer to prayer from their most gracious Heavenly Father. Then came two more wonderful answers to prayer as their second and third children were born. God is so faithful to his Word.
The ministry was small and additional finances were needed for the growing family. Michael knew not be fearful, anxious and frustrated over their money, but rather to trust God to lead and provide. God provided a simple idea about His Word. During one Sunday church service, the Lord spoke to his heart (not an audible voice, but rather just knowing what to do in his spirit). “Put my Word on your checkbook cover, speak it over your finances, and then trust me.” The scripture teaches, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.” 2 Cor. 4:13
Michael went home and put a scripture on the family checkbook cover. A short time after, in a desire to make them available to others, he contacted a company to make the checkbooks and imprint them with various scriptures that taught God’s faithfulness concerning finances. What started as a very small, simple instruction from God was in one year’s time being sold in over one thousand churches and Christian bookstores. Again God provided through the Holy Spirit’s leading and faith in his Word.
New products have been added over the years, but their prayer is still the same – that every checkbook cover, wallet, or scripture card will be a seed of the Word of God into the individual’s heart; that the seed of the Word, will produce faith in and faithfulness to our gracious heavenly Father. Part of their mission is to create, manufacture, distribute and market Biblically-based products to impact the lives of people everywhere for the Kingdom of God.
