MorningStar Publications and Ministries is a diverse and expanding international ministry founded by Rick and Julie Joyner in 1985. It began with the biblical mandate of Matthew 24:45-46:
Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time?
Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes.
To comply with this mandate, we seek to always serve the Master's household, not be served by it. Our ministry motto is:
“We will not use people to build our ministry, but we use our ministry to build people.”
