Our Story

Spiritbuilding Publishers is committed to providing you with quality, scriptural, and uplifting spiritual resources. With almost forty writers from around the country, we are dedicated to providing you with a large variety of Bible study workbooks, books, tracts, and other materials.

Spiritbuilding Publishers was established in January 2020. We are proud to carry on the legacy established by Carl (Mac) and Lorna McMurray who began Spiritbuilding Publishing in 2002. Mac has always been a major encourager of young preachers, helping them get started in preaching and writing workbooks, tracts, and books. Spiritbuilding became the perfect platform for several of them to get their work to market. Building the business from scratch in central Indiana, the McMurrays turned Spiritbuilding into a national resource for providing quality Bible class material for the Churches of Christ.

After retiring from full time preaching and moving to Illinois, Matthew and Becky Allen purchased the business from Carl and Lorna at the end of 2019. Operating out of their southwest Ohio home, the Allen's have worked hard to expand the company’s reach through social media marketing, a modern online store, and personal relationships with Christian bookstores connected to the Churches of Christ. At the beginning of 2021 the Allen's were able to purchase Courageous Living books and add these high quality Bible class materials to Spiritbuilding’s already robust selection. 

Since taking ownership, Matthew and Becky have also updated and redesigned the layout of a good number of books and workbooks Spiritbuilding published years ago. They are also working hard to add new writers who are committed to producing quality material every year. Having been blessed by this growth, Spiritbuilding has been able to put together a part time staff who has become indispensable in helping to succeed in bringing you resources that aid in your spiritual growth.

We are excited about our future and are committed to glorifying God in all we do every single day.
