Our Mission

Reaching more people in more places with quality services and resources that help them come to know and deepen their knowledge of God through Jesus Christ, learn to love God, and choose to serve God and neighbor.

The United Methodist Publishing House is a publisher and distributor to Christian clergy and laity, with primary responsibilities for the publishing and distribution for The United Methodist Church. We operate under the direction and control of the twenty-one-member Board of The United Methodist Publishing House. Fifteen of the members are elected by the church’s five jurisdictional conferences, two are selected by the United Methodist Council of Bishops, two represent the Central Conference, and two are chosen by the Board itself. The Publishing House is a fully self-supporting agency and receives no general church funds.
