Do you serve your church and community in a leadership role? You have a unique perspective to share with the world. Whether working as a church lay leader, the leader of the women’s ministry, or an itinerant evangelist, publishing a book can further your message far beyond your own church.
Equip Press helps church leaders, who are often overlooked by traditional publishers, transform their messages into high-quality books that make a difference in the world and the lives of many.
Equip Press is a division of Outreach, Inc., the largest provider of church outreach products and services in the world. When you partner with us for your self-publishing needs, you’ll be supported by an innovative company that can help you reach beyond your church and speak to the world with your book. Our unique marketing network of ten websites, that have millions of visitors a month, for pastors and ministry leaders provides an effective way to reach your target audience.
