Judson Press is the publishing arm of American Baptist Churches in the U.S.A., an evangelical, ecumenical, interracial denomination with a global outreach. There are 1.5 million members in 5800 local congregations in the United States and Puerto Rico. Its national offices, located in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, are known as the "Mission Center". Our publishing ministries are named after Adoniram Judson, who was the first American to establish Baptist work in another country (Burma).

The Judson publishing enterprise is a ministry of the educational mission board, formally named the American Baptist Board of Education and Publication, but more commonly known as Educational Ministries. EM's mission focuses on assisting local churches through its program ministries of education and Judson's publishing ministries.

To our American Baptist constituency Judson Publishing sells a full line of curriculum (one product for adults published in-house and several lines published by other companies/denominations), a quarterly devotional guide (The Secret Place), a line of church bulletins, paraments and fine churchware, and offering envelope services. All of these products are offered through retail distribution and orders are taken by our customer service staff at 1-800-4-JUDSON.

We also sell Judson Press books and merchandise wholesale to bookstores, distributors, and other trade customers. Although several of our products/books are designed for Baptists, they are not specific to our own denominational constituency. Our products sell predominantly to clergy and local church leaders in mainline Protestant denominations, African American congregations and church leaders, women clergy, and interested lay persons.
