COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (October 3, 2011)—NavPress has entered into an agreement with Kerygma Publishing/Allen David Books to distribute books and teaching resources by pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie beginning in October 2011.
In addition to distributing bestsellers such as Hope for Hurting Hearts, What Every Christian Needs to Know, and Married. Happily., NavPress will publish new Bible studies by Laurie beginning in 2012.
“Jesus told us to go into all the world and make disciples. This is not a request but a command from our Lord,” Laurie said. “My life is committed to doing everything I can to bring the gospel to our generation. As both an evangelist and a pastor, my interest is not only in seeing people come forward to follow Christ, but also to go forward in spiritual maturity. That is why I am so excited to be partnering with an organization that understands the importance of evangelism and discipleship: The Navigators.
“Since 1933, The Navigators have been actively involved in equipping Christians to study and memorize Scripture, as well as share their faith and make disciples. I am confident that, as we partner together, we will help even more people do that in the days ahead,” he added.
Laurie, who founded the evangelistic Harvest Crusade events in 1990, serves as senior pastor of one of the largest churches in the United States, Harvest Christian Fellowship, which has campuses in Riverside and Irvine, CA. During the past 22 years, Harvest Crusades have drawn some 4.3 million people to events in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
In addition to speaking and assisting other ministries, Laurie has authored more than 70 books including As I See It, Daily Hope for Hurting Hearts, Christian Dating, Essentials, Run to Win, Upside Down Living, The Greatest Stories Ever Told, and many more.
His autobiography, Lost Boy, was released in June 2008 and continues to be one of the bestselling Christian biographies of all time.
Laurie has written study notes for the bestselling The New Believer’s Bible. He also wrote the notes for the recently released Start! Bible in the New King James Version, published by Thomas Nelson. Greg is presently working on a new Bible project called Refresh, which is a devotional Bible.
As host of the television program Knowing God with Greg Laurie and of the syndicated radio program A New Beginning, Laurie has appeared on ABC World News Tonight, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN. He also functions as a guest commentator at Worldnetdaily.com, and appears regularly on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). Laurie also serves on the board of directors for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
“We are thrilled to partner with Greg Laurie in this way,” said Mike Miller, president of NavPress. “Greg has impacted millions of people around the world with his speaking and his writing. It is a joy and an honor for NavPress to be a partner in reaching more people with Greg’s resources. We anticipate many more lives changed through his messages for years to come.”
