Writing for Lifeway
Bible Study and Personal Growth Materials
The Lifeway Church Resources Division publishes study materials for use in Sunday School, small groups, worship, discipleship, and leadership ministries in local churches. A large number of resources are available for adults, students, kids, and preschoolers and for their leaders. Some materials also are provided in Spanish, Korean, Chinese, and Vietnamese.
All curriculum writing in Lifeway Church Resources is done by assignment. Curriculum writers are generally active members of Southern Baptist churches, and in most cases, they are also actively involved in the kind of study group for which they write. Persons interested in being considered for a curriculum assignment should write or email the editor of the resource or publication for which they desire to write. Please see the product's masthead for addresses to which you can write.
Many of Lifeway's magazines support activities and ministries in churches by providing help and training for church leaders of various roles. Examples are: Church Musician Today, Deacon, and Let's Worship.
Most writing is done by assignment. Occasionally, however, an editor of one of these magazines publishes a well-written freelance article that supports the magazine’s purpose and meets the needs of the target group. Persons interested in writing for ministry-related magazines should send queries or manuscripts to the editor of the title for which they desire to write. Email or physical addresses can be found in each product's masthead.

Most of the writing is done by assignment. Persons interested in writing for one of these titles should write or email the editor of the title for which they want to write to request guidelines. Addresses can be found in each product's masthead.
