Our Mission

Founded in 2002, Church Executive has established itself as the leading business and management magazine for large Christian churches. With a readership almost wholly made up of senior pastors, executive pastors and business administrators from churches with weekend attendance of 1,000 or more, Church Executive focuses on topics like stewardship, finances, fund raising, capital campaigns, multi-site operations, communications, tax and legal issues, facilities, staffing, transportation and human resources.

In addition to a monthly magazine delivered in both print and digital format, Church Executive produces a bi-monthly electronic newsletter and maintains a dynamic website, churchexecutive.com. Through all our media we provide high quality information designed to meet the non-spiritual needs of our readers. Our mission, in short, is to help church leaders become better stewards.
