CAROL STREAM, Ill. (November 11, 2021)—Tyndale House Publishers (@tyndalehouse) and Church Answers (@churchanswers) have announced the formation of a new ministry partnership aimed at serving and equipping local churches to thrive in their God-given mission. Tyndale and Church Answers share the conviction that the local church is God’s stage for individual and societal transformation. Through this partnership, cutting-edge initiatives are currently in development to supply church leaders with the most up-to-date tools and information to help local congregations flourish in the twenty-first century.
This partnership includes a multi-book, multi-year agreement with bestselling author and church strategist Thom Rainer (@thomrainer), publishing books that cover topics vital to a church’s life and health. Each core book will have an accompanying video curriculum, participant’s guide, and other ancillary books to empower church leaders and inspire church members.
Thom Rainer, founder and CEO of Church Answers, commented, “From a personal perspective, I am so grateful for the confidence Tyndale has placed in me to write books for local churches for the next several years. From Church Answers’ perspective, the alignment is perfect. Tyndale is one of the leading Christian content providers in the world. I am incredibly enthusiastic about the two organizations working together for local churches for the glory of God.”
In addition to the multi-book agreement, the partnership will feature a new Church Answers Resource book series edited by Thom Rainer. These books will focus on key practical issues for the local church and will include some of the leading authors in the genre.
Ron Beers, Tyndale’s Senior VP and Publisher says, “Tyndale is ecstatic about our long-term partnership with Thom Rainer and Church Answers. Thom is a gifted leader, teacher, and communicator whose personal mission aligns perfectly with Tyndale’s. He is so successful and respected among tens of thousands of churches not only because he is a thoughtful and talented writer, but also because he knows perhaps better than anyone the needs and pulse of the church—its leaders and congregants. Working together, we have no doubt we will create tools to serve the church in unique and powerful ways so that we can all participate more fully in the growth of God’s Kingdom for His glory.”
Tyndale and Church Answers will also work jointly on the new ministry site, ChurchAnswers.com. This platform is one of the largest sites in the world focusing on local church ministry.
