NavPress sells Life Bible Study division; Alabama Baptist to direct new groupcomment (0)
January 30, 2014
NavPress has sold its Life Bible Study (LBS) division, publisher of biblically based digital and print content, to the newly formed Life Bible Study, LLC, a group founded and owned by senior partners Barry Sneed and Quentin Whitwell.
LBS was originally known as Student Life Publishing and was based out of Birmingham. It was acquired by NavPress in 2010.
LBS is best known for its youth digital curriculum, providing group curricula for students, children, preschoolers and adults in digital and print formats.
The new owners will maintain the current sales and customer service team, adding new personnel as needed.
The new company will continue to deliver Bible Studies for Sunday Schools and small groups through their enhanced online delivery system.
Former LBS president John Herring, executive pastor at NorthPark Baptist Church, Trussville, will remain as managing director and direct publisher of the newly formed group. He has served Alabama Baptist churches for the past 30 years.
“I am humbled to be able to serve in this way,” Herring told The Alabama Baptist. “Because our roots are here, many Alabama churches have been with us from the very beginning. I am so grateful for their continued faith in us.”
