1. How can I learn more
about the pews or chairs?
Please understand that
Gabriel Ministry Services does not
own or possess the pews, chairs or
furniture. They belong to the churches that
want to sell them. We are putting buyer and
seller together. In some cases, the church
selling the furniture may have asked us to respond
to inquiries for them, which we will do.
2. What about the
condition of the pews?
Generally they are in pretty
good condition. However, please remember
that they are used. They will have
scratches, bad places, etc. But, in 98% of
the cases they are useable as you see them.
Ask us about them, and we will tell you. We
are not trying to hide anything.
Occasionally they may need some
work, but they are easy to work on. Email us
if you need ideas on refinishing or touching up
3. I have pews,
chairs or pulpits to sell... how do I list them?

4. What about delivery?
We do not offer delivery
services for the pews. However, we know
of several folks who do move, modify,
deliver and install pews. See our
5.What guarantee do we
We do not offer one, and the
selling church probably won't either. If you
are interested in guarantee, we recommend
6. How do we make
Payment can be made directly to
the selling church, or you can use a legitimate
escrow service like
(This is the service EBay recommends). The first
deposit will hold the pews for you. The
key word is first. When we list these
for sale, they usually don't last long. We have
sold some within 1 hour of listing them.
7. Is this a safe way
to do business?
In a word,
yes. Our service has assisted churches
for many years and we have a physical office, real
people, etc. We really answer the phone, too

Keep in mind that this is a
church to church transaction. It is as safe
as anything we know about. Just make sure
you are only doing business with USA or Canadian
churches, missions, ministries or synagogues.
8. Why do you provide
Services is in the service
of Helping Churches Grow! It
is our desire to help new, small, and start up
churches find the equipment (furniture) that they
need to have worship services in style and
comfort. We work to that end by providing a
venue for churches which have furniture to sell or
give away, so that churches in need can find it
funds from the sale of the used furniture goes
directly to the church selling it.
In other words, there is no profit to us in the
buying or selling of the furniture.
9. What about crossing
the US - Canada border with pews?
