About Us

City Christian Publishing is an independent publisher and part of the Extension Ministry of City Bible Church in Portland Oregon.


In 1967 twelve young adults met with Pastor Dick Iverson at Bible Temple, now City Bible Church, and asked to receive leadership training by seasoned leaders within the church. With just a handful of students, Portland Bible College was launched. As the school trained and released leaders into the community and abroad, interest in the biblically based resources created by the pastor and instructors began to grow. In just a short time, it became evident that an organized method for producing and distributing these educational materials was necessary; and that was the beginning of Bible Temple Publishing, now called City Christian Publishing.


Since that time, God has blessed City Christian Publishing with tremendous growth and demand for the timeless truths found in those early resources. During the past 40 years, we have published additional titles by great educators and leaders including Pastor Frank Damazio, Kevin J. Conner, Bill Scheidler, Ken Malmin and others.  Our products have stood test of time and are written to strengthen the Body of Christ by equipping every member to be a vital, participating member of what the Spirit is doing in the Church today.


It is our prayer that you would receive a fresh word from the truths found in these resources. May God bless you richly as you discover, grow and fulfill His plan for you and your ministry.
