Who is Spirit & Truth Publishing?
Spirit & Truth Publishing is an independent faith formation publishing company committed to providing high-quality, innovative faith formation materials for all ages. Our products are tools that faith formation leaders (teachers, small group leaders, pastors, worship leaders, etc.) can use to connect education with the worship service and integrate a congregation’s faith formation efforts throughout all ages. Spirit & Truth Publishing was started in 2010 by Gregory Rawn, and it has expanded to three different product lines used by over 400 customers in more than 20 denominations worldwide. All Living the Word, Learning Together, and Chosen Together products follow our Theological Guidelines.
Owner and Publisher
Gregory has transitioned over the last twelve years from the sole writer of the Spirit and Truth: Teaching Kids the Heart of Worship curriculum, to the publisher of over 45 products and counting, assisted by a small team of writers, editors, illustrators, and layout artists. In addition to running the business and marketing aspects of the company, Gregory still utilizes his background in theology and Christian history he developed earning his MA from Luther Seminary (St. Paul, MN) as the theological, biblical, and historical editor of the Living the Word and Learning Together series. Gregory’s experience as a children’s writer and a graduate of the Institute of Children’s Literature has shaped the form and style of the stories and skits for the Spirit and Truth curriculum. And, finally, his experience as a father of two has made him acutely aware of the need for resources to engage our youth in the joyful work of worship, so church does not become just one more thing kids (or even adults) “have to do.”
