New Voice Media Group was launched in 2007 by four founding partners -- Associated Baptist Press, the Baptist Standard of Texas, Word&Way of Missouri and the Religious Herald of Virginia.
The four founding partners collaborate to produce their news publications, sharing a similar graphic design and a “core” of content. Other publishing partners could include news organizations, Baptist groups of any size or location, and affinity groups that could benefit from cost- or content-collaboration.
Universities, institutions, Baptist ministries, and individuals vitally concerned about historic Baptist identity can become New Voice identity partners, collaborating through advertising, financial support and strategic planning.
Digital mediaAll New Voice partners will have a presence on our network of inter-related websites -- all sharing one database but accessible through a variety of customized, branded home pages, each with a unique Internet addresses.
