The ministry of helping local churches follow-up new believers was born in the heart of Keith Parks in the early 1960's. The original burden came when he saw people making decisions for Christ, but failing to become His disciples. Over the years, several tools were written and published, including: 'The Successful Life, How to Win Friends and Influence Believers, Know How, You Are Welcome, First Things First and Fisher's of Men. The best known of these was 'First Things First,' which was published in over 30 languages. These studies were published in French and used in Quebec in the late 1970's.

In the mid 1980's, 'Bible To All' of Stockholm, Sweden published a course, written by Keith called, "Discovering God's Way Of Peace" It was placed in the back of a New Testament. To date over 30,000,000 copies have been distributed in several languages.  In 1998, while pastoring at Waterloo Pentecostal Assembly in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, Keith published a new series called & "SEEDS"; This series of four workbooks for new believers is now published in five languages.

During the years from 1998 to 2000, a course for children called "Seedlings" modeled on the SEEDS series, was written and tested by Heather Card, a member of Waterloo Pentecostal Assembly. Seedlings in now published in English and Spanish. Plans are underway to publish it in French, Romanian and Khmer (for Cambodia ), in the near future.  

During the spring of 2000, Dr. Sam Martin, Senior Pastor of Bayfair Baptist Church in Pickering, Ontario suggested the idea of "Project Seedbag." Keith and his son Rick soon put the first 30,000 bags together. After arriving from India , the bags were distributed to local churches for hand painting, prayer, toys and financial assistance. Because of the generosity of David and Ron Mainse of 100 Huntley Street , as well as Don Raymer of the Emergency Relief and Development Organization, the project became "Feed and Seed." In one week, with record telephone participation, the general public and the partners of the daily Canadian telecast financially supplied the need for over 20,000 children in the war refugee camps of Sierra Leone.

Seeds Publications International was born in the year 2000 as a non-profit, charitable organization.  Seeds International continues to grow under God's guidance. People in Europe, Central America, Africa, Asia and the Canadian Arctic are asking us to come and work with them. In 2004 and 2005 our first Dinner Theatre tour of the play "Little One" toured Canada raising funds and awareness for Project Seedbag.
