A Lot Has Happened in 40 Years!

by Mark W. Kuyper, President/CEO, ECPA



1974.  A few visionary Christian publishers decide that working together through an industry trade association would bring more opportunity in making the Christian message more widely known.


2014.  They were right.  This year the Christian publishing industry celebrates 40 years of industry collaboration and fellowship through ECPA.  It’s a time to look back to see where we came from, what we’ve accomplished, and what we can look forward to … together.


A Blast From the Past:  Take a look at our website at to see where we came from, those individuals and companies who made it all happen 40 years ago, and what has been accomplished in four decades.


Celebrate the Now:  Please plan to celebrate with us at the ECPA Awards & Anniversary Banquet, with Alumni Reception, on April 28, opening night of the ECPA Leadership Summit at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs. Those attending the conference will be automatically registered.  Industry alumni and guests not registered for the Summit can opt to purchase tickets separately for this event.


Where We’re Headed:  There will be no better place or time to discuss the future while strategizing the present than the ECPA Leadership Summit, April 28-30, in Colorado Springs – where the first ECPA Management Seminar convened in 1975.  Our speaker line-up and program is the best yet (we say that every year, but I really mean it!).  Registration is now open at and our program and speakers are listed there.
