Marketing Manager, Children and Youth


As a culture, we need a voice we can trust. Someone to cut through the noise and point to true north. For over 50 years, Tyndale has proved a faithful guide—helping readers discover the life-giving truths of the Bible.

Today, we’re one of the largest independently owned Christian publishers in the world. But our mission is the same: to open God’s Word to as many as possible in language they can relate to and understand.

Along with Bibles, we offer a wide range of nonfiction books—insight to renew the spirit while tackling life at street level. We publish children’s poducts to engage and enrich the next generation. We publish fiction from fresh, new voices and celebrated authors alike—capturing the imagination of millions of fans.

But at Tyndale, sales are only a means. Every year, a majority of profits are given to charitable missions, helping serve people in need around the world.

TYNDALE. Trusted. For Life.
