NFJAfter many months of careful contemplation, wise counsel, creative thinking and roll-up-your-sleeves crafting, the inaugural Nurturing Faith Journal is in the hands of the printer. Soon it will be in the hands of readers far and wide.

Blending the familiar with the new, this enlarged, colorful bimonthly magazine carries on the 33-year mission of Baptists Today in a less-exclusive way.

A resource for thoughtful Christians, this new 64-page magazine is filled with informative and inspiring original content — along with the scholarly yet applicable Nurturing Faith Bible Studies by Tony Cartledge.

Subscribers will also gain access to exclusive daily-updated information when the new Nurturing Faith web site launches around the first of March. To receive the first issue, dated March-April 2016, along web access, please subscribe here.

Also, group subscriptions are available — at a discounted rate — for classes using the Nurturing Faith Bible Studies, with free online teaching resources . Subscribe online or call (478) 301-5655 to get started.

We are excited and pleased to offer this updated, expanded publication and related resources to nurture the faith of those (anyone!) who value trusted information and thought-provoking analysis of issues and trends impacting Christian living in a fast-changing, technologically-advanced time of growing diversity.

Unrestricted by any denominational control and guided by an independent Board of Directors that values editorial freedom and tackling the challenges and opportunities before us, Nurturing Faith fulfills a unique mission.

We welcome you to be a part of Nurturing Faith by subscribing now. It’s a good way to KNOW and to GROW.
