In so doing, the ministry helps create and launch new ministries, or propel existing ministries forward.
Goals: 1) To provide more opportunities and better opportunities for Christian writers. 2) To build up the body of Christ and reach the lost through the written word. 3) To generate excess financial resources for God’s kingdom.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” – Isaiah 52:7
Our Story: Some years back, Chris McKinney was searching for how he fit into the Body of Christ. Chris earnestly sought the Lord to lead him into his calling. Every so often, Chris would get a word from the Lord: “I am going to build you a house.”
Chris just thought God was telling him that He would one day give him a thriving business or ministry. Years went by, and those things remained out of reach. Eventually, Chris pretty much forgot about this word.
But God did show Chris that His primary gifting and calling was to write, edit, and publish Christian material. Chris felt led to start a publishing company with a mission to publish Christian books. The first two books encouraged and blessed some people, but commercially and financially, the publishing company did not have success. Chris wondered how he could ever keep going.
Around April of 2019, Chris asked the Lord if he should just drop the book publishing and focus on his work as a Christian magazine editor. The Lord gave him that word again, “I am going to build you a house.” This time, Chris immediately knew that the Lord meant “publishing house.” That’s what He had meant the whole time.
Step by step, little by little, the Lord has built this house. And He will continue to build it. To God be the glory!
NOTE: Called Writers Christian Publishing is a Christian organization with a Christ-centered, Gospel-driven mission. For that reason, we are only able to work with Christian authors whose fundamental beliefs, messages, theology, or doctrines are congruent with our own.
