Pursuing a Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Exercising Intentionality in Staying Fresh, Relevant, and Effective as a Publisher

In this webinar, Jeff Crosby will share personal stories and insights drawn from his four decades of experience that will help you pursue what Eugene Peterson called a “long obedience” in your work with Christian literature, regardless of the particular space you occupy. He will offer practical suggestions and take-aways for staying fresh, relevant and effective as both an individual and an organizational leader. 
Jeff Crosby’s 38 years in the Christian book industry in North America have spanned roles in retailing, wholesale distribution and, beginning in January of 1998, publishing, where he served in several executive capacities at InterVarsity Press/USA, most recently as its publisher from 2016 to 2021. Jeff is now president and chief executive officer of ECPA, an international non-profit trade organization comprised of member companies that are involved in the publishing and distribution of Christian content worldwide.
Jeff is currently at work on a manuscript titled “The Language of the Soul: Meeting God in the Longings of Our Hearts,” to be published in May 2023 by Broadleaf Books.
