• Third Thursdays Webinars

    Monthly programs on a wide range of topics.


    Just as our Publishing Company and Adjunct Company Members have had to adapt to changing technologies, churches that aren’t meeting in person due to the pandemic of 2020 and bookstores that have reduced their hours for in-person shopping, PCPA has adapted, too, by launching our Third Thursdays webinar program!


    Just as the name implies, these are 1-hour webinars on a wide range of topics of interest to those publishing for Protestant Christians. Generally, the facilitator speaks or offers a PowerPoint or video for 20 to 40 minutes, then the balance of the time is reserved for discussion and Q&A among the participants.


    Pre-registration is required. Just email PCPA Executive Director Beth Lewis with the Third Thursday webinars you want to attend and she’ll send you the Zoom login. Best of all? These webinars are all FREE for employees of PCPA member companies!

    "Expanding Your Global Reach Through POD" with PCPA Adjunct Member/Partner Rob Clements of Ingram Content Group.

    Many Christian publishers have historically relied on exclusive sub-licensing deals or foreign distributors to make their titles outside of the North America. This webinar will examine several ways in which print on demand technology now enables publishers to sustainably print, sell and distribute their titles in places such as the UK, Australia, India, South Korea and Brazil. Frequently asked questions about rights management and pricing strategies will be addressed.
