WL MAGAZINE

Established in 1992.

Worship Leader Magazine’s objective is to educate Church leaders on the meaning of worship – past & present – in both practical application and spiritual development.

Practical. Spiritual. Original.

In 2020 we introduced a new digital platform for the magazine. The platform is driven by memberships in order to create a more engaging and useful resource for worship teams. It also offers interactivity and immediate call to action for advertisers. 

Plus, the new digital platform allows us to keep the library of our entire catalog of issues in one place, for our readers to refer back to with one simple click.

Advertising in the magazine lasts longer.

According to Marketing Sherpa, “Consumers trust magazines more than any other advertising channel at the point in time that matters most to marketers — when they are making a purchase decision.”
