Church Publishing Incorporated

Church Publishing Incorporated (CPI) was founded in 1918 as the Church Hymnal Corporation, a nonprofit affiliate of the Church Pension Group. Today, CPI’s 14 staff professionals produce about 50 new books and resources each year, and manage a portfolio of more than 1,500 active titles, many sold worldwide.

CPI’s core publishing program is structured around The Hymnal 1982, The Book of Common Prayer, and the specialized books and resources used in the liturgy, faith formation, governance, life, and mission of the Episcopal Church.

General trade and academic books, commentaries, and topical series extend CPI’s reach into the worldwide Anglican Communion and broader ecumenical marketplace. Specialty topics range from Benedictine spirituality to the emerging/missional church, and from professional leadership to faith formation. In addition, CPI produces a wide range of church supplies and digital ministry resources.

CPI also supports, participates with, and/or publishes in partnership with more than 400 authors, as well as agencies, schools, and seminaries of the Episcopal Church, the Standing Commission on Liturgy & Music, the Task Force on Formation & Ministry of the Baptized, and the Office of the General Convention.
