Tyndale House Publishers and Church Answers announce new partnership dedicated to equipping the local Church

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, This platform is one of the largest sites in the world focusing on local church ministry.

Founded in Franklin, Tennessee, Church Answers began in 2019 as the continuation of the platform of Thom Rainer. Today the organization reaches two out of three churches in North America and a growing number of churches globally.

Since its founding in 1962, Tyndale House Publishers has been a voice to trust for generations of readers. Today, Tyndale is one of the largest independent Christian publishers in the world. Tyndale’s mission is to make the Bible accessible to as many people as possible in language that they can relate and respond to. Tyndale publishes the Holy Bible, New Living Translation (NLT) and offers nonfiction books that equip readers with Christ-centered insight, counsel, and life-improving stories. In addition, Tyndale publishes fiction from fresh new voices and celebrated authors alike, capturing the imagination of millions of readers. With a deep understanding of the importance of nurturing future generations, Tyndale also publishes children’s products that make God’s Word and wisdom come alive. Tyndale’s independent status allows it to follow its founding model, giving a majority of annual revenue—more than $110 million throughout its history—to charitable missions. With every book purchased, Tyndale readers help meet the physical and spiritual needs of people around the world.
