The United Methodist Publishing House, which includes the work of Cokesbury, Abingdon Press, and the Common English Bible, 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 thirty-eight-member Board of The United Methodist Publishing House. Board members are elected by the church’s five jurisdictional conferences or selected by the United Methodist Council of Bishops, and several are chosen by the Board itself.
The Publishing House is a fully self-supporting agency. For more than 60 years UMPH has made annual contributions to clergy pensions amounting to over $50 million. UMPH is a dedicated partner in ministry to congregations, committed to developing and providing the broadest array of resources for your ministry in the United Methodist Church. Let us know what you want and we will deliver it!
