New Frontiers: Innovating Beyond Traditional Boundaries

September 23-25 at the Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock


ECPA’s annual C-Suite Symposium presents the only opportunity within Christian publishing where C-level executives—from large to small houses—can engage at a meaningful level with expert information and trends relevant to their unique roles in leading the industry.

  • “Each year at the ECPA C-Suite Symposium, I am inspired and enriched by conversations with colleagues, and equipped to strengthen our house by the presenters. Thank you for creating such an essential experience year after year.”
    Paul Santhouse
    VP & Publisher, Moody Publishers
  • “A fellowship of believing publishers rather than a coterie of competitors: who would have thought it possible! Congratulations to all at ECPA for creating an atmosphere of mutual encouragement, and for being willing to name the tough issues and help each other negotiate them.”
    Greg Clarke
    Group CEO, Bible Society Australia

    The Way Back

    Phil Cooke has created and produced media programming in more than 60 countries, including many of the most influential Christian and inspirational TV programs in history. His topic will focus on the theme of his new book, The Way Back, where he shows that Christians and the church have lost their “way” by emphasizing the wrong things in their pursuit to be culture influencers. Phil proposes that we embrace the spiritual disciplines of submission, service, sacrifice, and suffering as a way back to the passion and commitment of the early followers of Jesus.
