About Us

Outreach magazine is the gathering place of ideas, insights and stories for Christian churches focused on reaching out to their community—locally and globally—with the love of Christ. Our primary readers are pastors and church leaders, as well as laity who are passionate about outreach.

Awarded both secular and Christian recognition for excellence in content and presentation, Outreach magazine serves as a fresh stream of practical resources and tactics for pastors and volunteer leadership in all areas of outreach. It is published in print and also hosts a robust website at outreachmagazine.com.

The magazine connects churches with the innovations, research and insights practiced in thriving churches and discussed in Outreach by authors, speakers and church leaders, like Francis Chan, Craig Groeschel, Dave Ferguson, Gabe Lyons, Rick Warren, Samuel Rodriguez, Andy Stanley and many others.

Special editions include The Outreach 100 annual megachurch report, featuring the country’s 100 fastest-growing churches, and Small Church America, celebrating the achievements of smaller congregations and church planting efforts. Other recurring themes highlight leadership, evangelism, resources and innovation.

Outreach magazine began publishing in January 2002 in response to church leaders across the nation who were seeking ideas and inspiration for outreach as well as a place to share the testimony of God’s work through the local church. The magazine is published bimonthly by Outreach Inc. We are a nondenominational publication adhering to traditional biblical Christianity.
