New Owners for Christian Standard Media
Parker, Colorado—February 13, 2017—The Solomon Foundation (TSF), a church extension fund serving the Christian churches and churches of Christ with headquarters in Parker, Colorado, has acquired Christian Standard Media, according to TSF chief executive officer Doug Crozier. Christian Standard Media consists of The Lookout and Christian Standard magazines.
“Christian Standard and The Lookout, so important to the Christian churches and churches of Christ for 15 decades, are now residing where they belong,” Crozier said, “with a ministry also committed to the congregations in this fellowship.”
“We’re delighted by this opportunity to grow in our service to the churches,” said Mark A. Taylor, publisher.
Crozier stressed that the magazines will operate as an independent, nonprofit ministry, Restoration Movement Media, a Colorado nonprofit corporation continuing to serve as many congregations, ministries, and Christian leaders as possible. While the magazines’ business will be conducted from the Colorado office, the editorial staff will continue to operate from Cincinnati, Ohio. Taylor is editor of Christian Standard, and Kelly Carr is The Lookout editor.
Christian Standard was founded in 1866 by Isaac Errett whose family owned the magazine, which grew into Standard Publishing. The Lookout began publication in 1894. The Errett heirs sold the business to a Christian businessman in 1955, and it became the cornerstone of a multinational corporation finally known as Standex International.
Christian Standard Media will continue to serve readers through the two print magazines, their three websites ChristianStandard.com, LookoutMag.com, and ChristianStandardMedia.com, as well Christian Standard’s digital editions, available through a widely distributed app for phone or tablet.
