• 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 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 registration information. Best of all? These webinars are all FREE for employees of PCPA member companies!



    Note: There will be no Third Thursday webinar in April because of our Annual Conference.
