The Priority of Diversity in Christian Publishing


by Stan Jantz, ECPA President and CEO
February 2019 

For the past three years ECPA has encouraged conversations about the importance of diversity in the books our members publish, as well as the people they hire. The Emerging Leaders initiative at PubU, along with the speakers who have presented at Leadership Summit -- such as Skot Welch, Trillia Newbell, Ed Stetzer, Michelle Sanchez, and Bryan Loritts -- have communicated an important message to our industry: Diversity is both a missional mandate and also an economic opportunity.

We are pleased to present two white papers on "The Priority of Diversity in Christian Publishing" by Dr. Theon Hill. Dr. Hill is a professor of communications at Wheaton College and a friend of ECPA. He has presented at PubU, The Art of Writing conference, and most recently at Leadership Summit -- where he presented on how to connect your publishing program to a diverse community.  Those strategies for change are now presented in the second paper, "We Must Change Too: A White Paper on Strategic Approaches to Diversity in Christian Publishing."

I encourage all ECPA members to read these two papers, commissioned by ECPA for its members.
