Write for SundayMag

Want to write for SundayMag? We’d love to add you as a contributor.

SundayMag is a free online magazine for pastors and churches, exploring ways you can grow your church and engage your community.

We typically cover the following subjects:

  • Creative Process
  • Visuals and Design
  • Worship
  • Leadership
  • Tech and Production
  • Communication/Marketing
  • Social Media

We also publish articles in our Currents category that are timely and newsworthy content that applies to creative thinkers in the church. These articles don’t have to be tutorials or deep thought pieces, and often contain commentary or opinion from the author, but they should contain content that is of interest or has entertainment value to the SundayMag audience.

We’re not just focused on the weekend worship service, but on every aspect behind the scenes that helps the church grow and engage with the community.

Your articles should remain relevant two to three years from now. We aim for a word count of about 600-1000 words per article. We also prefer to publish original content. Please don’t submit articles you have posted or plan to post elsewhere.

In order to save you time and give your piece the best chance of making it onto, we ask that you familiarize yourself with current content on the site, and review the writing guidelines below.

We will accept finished articles, but we can’t guarantee we will publish every submission we receive.

Writing Guidelines

SundayMag looks for articles that are philosophical enough that they can reach a church of any size, but practical enough that the reader can make a conscious change to the way they do ministry after reading. This means we rarely cover specific gear like sound systems or musical instruments.

The exception to this would be a new technology, app, or product that would be of interest to the majority of our readers.

We look for articles with the following qualities:

  • Clarity and quality of writing.
    We love reading articles that are fun and filled with stories and examples we can relate to.
  • Encouraging in nature.
    We want to provide hope and the opportunity for change to our readers. It’s easy to point out problems; we want to point out solutions.
  • Theologically sound, but denominationally neutral.
    We realize many people believe different things. But if included or referenced in the article, we prefer concepts and doctrines that are broadly accepted.

All writers write on a volunteer basis. You may link to relevant sources, products, and other websites even if they are your own, but we do not condone spam or blatant promotion that doesn’t accompany helpful and practical content.

How to Submit

If you have any questions or want to pitch us an idea first, feel free to email us at with a brief summary of what you’d like to write about. Include applicable illustrations or stories so we can get an idea of where you’ll take the article.

You can also join our Facebook Group of SundayMag Contributors.

Otherwise, if your article is ready to go, please submit it below.

We will review your submission and either schedule it for the site or follow up with you for revisions. Submissions typically make it onto the site within 2 weeks.

Thanks for contributing to the community!
