“I run a marketing agency, so I’m always helping my clients find the best channels to reach their targeted audience. I had already experienced solid results with the Pastor Resources Guide before one particular client requested an eblast.

Knowing that the PR Guide's audience is significantly larger than their email list, we're excited to expand our relationship with PR and purchase space in the guide for their next campaign.”

They have developed an incredibly targeted subscriber list, made up of decision makers who are genuinely looking for resources. We’ve seen this proven by the outstanding ROI for both email and print. I’d recommend them to anyone promoting resources to churches."
“Walk Thru the Bible was looking for a vehicle to present our live teaching events and Bible teaching resources directly to church decision-makers. Our ads in Pastor Resources have quickly established our value with thousands of churches that didn’t previously know about us. We’re very pleased!”
