About Us

The Beginning
Turning a former liquor store into a Christian book, music and gift shop is only one of the miracles in the story of Perfect Peace Christian Lifestyle Store. The more than 13,000-square foot store is beautifully merchandised and appointed with display fixtures, many of which came from a major bookstore chain’s closing at just the right time for Perfect Peace to repurpose them for the Lord’s use!

Opening a store after a retail career in a completely different industry, owners Gerald and Gayla Hicks have now turned their expertise to serving the spiritual needs of their customers, and find the work much more fulfilling than even the greater financial success they may have enjoyed in their former work. Since the opening in 1999, they have sought to faithfully serve the Wichita and surrounding areas with a spirit of retailing excellence and commitment that the Lord and His people deserve their best each day. 

In September, 2008, Gerald received, what appeared at the time, a misplaced phone call from one of the principal owners of Superior School Supplies. After 28 years, the stores were going to close if a buyer could not be found. Again, after much prayer, planning and realizing that other Christian bookstores had similar product lines, Perfect Peace acquired the 2 locations of Superior on January 1, 2009. In February, the east and west Superior stores were re-located under the same roof as Perfect Peace. Now re-named, Superior Education Supply, we cater to public, private, and parochial educators with classroom décor, learning tools, supplemental teaching aids, and classroom equipment.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.  Isaiah 26:3

This is what God has called us, individually, to do and the ministry that He has called Perfect Peace to perform. Through books, Bibles, gifts, music, art, etc., we are in the business of helping others keep their mind on Him.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
