About Us


Kingdom Impact
“No other magazine affects the bottom-line kingdom impact of your church like Outreach. I devour each issue and always walk away with new ideas for reaching people. You simply can’t afford to not read it.”
Nelson Searcy

Cover to Cover
“With anticipation, I read each issue of Outreach cover to cover for relevant ideas and inspiration for evangelism. Outreach helps fuel my fire for reaching people for Christ.”

A Conference in a Magazine
“A conference in a magazine! That’s the way I see Outreach magazine each time the latest issue hits my desk. Chock-full of ideas that really worked in real churches like mine, Outreach features the most effective church thinkers and doers. Grab a copy, then go reach your community and change the world.”
Chuck Warnock
Chatham Baptist Church

An Encouragement to Keep Pressing Onward
“For any church leader who is taking the mission of Jesus seriously, there is no other resource out there that directly talks about evangelism like Outreach magazine does. It is not just evangelism theory in Outreach magazine, but it is stories and ideas from churches all across America of all sizes, shapes, denominations and approaches that we can learn from. Reading it feels like I am staying in tune with my brothers and sisters across America who are also passionate about evangelism. Every issue is an encouragement to keep pressing onward in the evangelistic mission.”

The Encouragement I Need
“The first time I opened Outreach magazine, I remember thinking, ‘Where have you been all my life?’ Finally a magazine that goes beyond theory to best practices without compromising Truth. I read Outreach every month like a textbook, and it has blessed our ministry with great ideas, leadership principles and, simply put, the encouragement I need.”

Able to Better Carry Out My Job
Outreach magazine gets it. They get the local church. They get the missional lifestyle of the kingdom. They also get some of the best writers and practitioners in the church world to help me get it. Because of the years I have been reading Outreach, I am able to better carry out my job.”

New Ideas
“One of my fears as a leader is getting trapped in a ‘closed system.’ That’s why I read Outreach. It’s at the top of the stack. I’m always getting new ideas from the articles.”
Mark Batterson
National Community Church
Washington, D.C.

Raising Up the Church
“The greatest challenge for church leaders is raising up the church ‘out of the culture.’ I love how Outreach keeps me thinking creatively about culture and the mission of Jesus through his church.”
John Burke
Gateway Church

Outwardly Focused
Outreach magazine helps turn inwardly focused people into outwardly focused Christ-followers by consistently offering practical, doable and authentic ideas, inspired by the practitioners who are on the front lines of advancing God’s kingdom. Don’t go outreaching without this magazine.”
