At its core, EPA is an association of print and digital periodicals (magazines, newspapers, newsletters, e-zines, blogs, content-rich websites, etc.). Full membership is available to publications (which publish at least two issues a year) and content-rich websites which provide a combination of such elements as news, editorial matter, and feature articles of responsible and substantial content. They must be serious journalistic efforts published to serve readers by enlarging their understanding of the Christian faith.
Associate membership is for individuals who are involved with our industry but are not on staff with a member publication — such as freelancers.
Affiliate membership is for businesses and organizations that are interested in the cause of Christian periodical publishing or are involved with our industry but do not publish a qualifying publication, such as vendors and public relations firms.
