There is great hope for your life through your relationship with God and with His people. You will recognize yourself in my experience, and when you do, you will share my hope.”

Dr. Stan Moody, President of Columbia Street Project (CSP) and Janet Robbins, owner of North Wind Publishing, announced today a partnership to create the publishing arm of CSP, Columbia Street Press. Its first publication was released on Monday, June 12: Wisdom for Our Sons: Straight Talk from a Street Cop. “Author Curtis Ostrander has broken through an invisible shield in American family life with his plea to restore civility by raising our sons to be thoughtful, sensitive and God-fearing”, says Moody. “He has learned through his experience as a career street cop in upstate NY, dealing with juvenile offenders, that the single most crucial factor in the future success or failure of our sons is the impact of a father. This fits right into the mission of CSP, ‘When faith gets down to business’. Church leaders and Christian parents are encouraged to scour this book for a path forward to responsible family life. Columbia Street Project is an outreach ministry of Columbia Street Baptist Church in Bangor, ME with a separate 501(c)(3) status. Its focus has been directed toward helping veterans and reentering prisoners to rise above their circumstances. Proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the mission of CSP and the author's non-profit "Dads for a Day" www.dadsforaday.org. Book may be purchased at www.northwindpublishing.com
