Who We Are
In 1869, Concordia Publishing House was founded as a small St. Louis printery with the mission to provide doctrinally sound materials for churches and individuals. Today, our company thrives as a nationally recognized publishing company that offers churches, schools, and individuals over 8,000 products and services. And while we continue to grow from our humble beginnings 140 years ago, our mission remains the same. Read more of the CPH story
