Conciliar Press was born 30 years ago as the publisher of AGAIN magazine.
“A Call for the People of God to Return to their Roots in Historic Christianity Once . . . AGAIN” began as the unofficial newspaper for a group of 2,000 evangelicals who were searching for the historic Church. Over the years, their search through the early church fathers led them to a stunning conclusion: that the early Church still lives today, and is in fact the Orthodox Christian Church.
This group of seekers—led by former Campus Crusade for Christ leaders, including Peter Gillquist—became Orthodox Christians in 1987 when they joined the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church of North America. Metropolitan Philip Saliba commissioned Conciliar Press to do on a large scale what we had been doing independently for over 10 years—to carry the story of the ancient faith to the modern world.
Today, Conciliar Media Ministries, Inc., is a department of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. It includes a print publishing arm (Conciliar Press) and a new media arm (Ancient Faith Radio). Conciliar Press produces dozens of books by the best writers in American Orthodoxy as well as icons, cards, and more. Through a partnership with the LXX Project and Thomas Nelson, Conciliar Press became the primary distributor of the Orthodox Study Bible. Ancient Faith Radio exists to supplement the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church with online audio programming of music, prayers, readings, lectures, and interviews, offering two 24-hour internet-based Orthodox radio stations and an extensive list of downloadable Orthodox podcasts. Ancient Faith Radio is a pan-Orthodox ministry seeking to serve and support all jurisdictions with clear and concise expressions of the faith.
Conciliar Media exists to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ through accessible and excellently crafted publications and creative media that lead to a living experience of God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit.
Our mission is to embrace the fullness of the Orthodox Christian faith, encourage the discipleship of believers, equip the faithful for ministry, and evangelize the world.
