More About Group Publishing

Group Publishing Group is much more than a publisher of ministry resources for Christian churches. Sure, we make an abundance of products for Sunday school, VBS, children's ministry, youth ministry, and more.

But what we really offer are experiences that grow your relationship with Jesus. Whether it's a Bible lesson, kids' craft, or teen mission trip, everything Group does revolves around getting closer to God.

If there's one thing you need to know about us, it's that we're enthusiastic about church ministry. Our team is made up of world-renowned ministry experts who spend their everyday lives in the trenches of real church ministry. We love this stuff, and we want nothing more than to help you be successful in your ministry.

What We Do
Being based at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains gives us a constant, majestic reminder of God's love and power in our lives. We use that inspiration to create resources for ministry to women, men, families, small groups, pastors, worship leaders, and even administrators.

We also have a wealth of resources for those who lead ministry volunteers (which is just about everybody). You'll find books, curriculum, magazines, websites, DVDs, CDs, kits, events, online training, and so much more here at Group. If your church does it, Group can probably help. (A lot.)
