Spiritbuilding Publishers was established in January 2020. We are proud to carry on the legacy established by Carl and Lorna McMurray who began Spiritbuilding Publishing in 2002. We are committed to producing high quality biblical books and workbooks at an affordable price. 

The owners, Matthew & Becky Allen, live in Waynesville, OH. Matthew has served as the minister for Cornerstone Church of Christ in Centerville, OH since 2010 and has been preaching since 1995.

Zackary is the activities director at Brighton Gardens Assisted Living in Centerville, OH.

Matt and Becky live out in the country on 4 acres. They've been blessed to fix up the mid-century home they purchased in 2018 and enjoy living outside of town. Besides their two children, they are the proud parents of two dachshunds, Frankie and Lily. Outside, they care for their two German Shepherd/Lab grandpups, Lucy and Luna. Matt's mother, Donna has resided with them since 2014 and Becky's mother, Loretta lives downstairs after moving to Ohio in 2018. 

They are excited to be in the publishing business. Over the previous two decades, Matthew has written a number of books and workbooks for Spiritbuilding.
