FOUNDED IN 1896 BY REV. DR. RICHARD HENRY BOYD, THE R.H. BOYD PUBLISHING CORPORATION CONTINUES TO BE A BEACON OF EXCELLENCE IN THE PRINTING, PUBLISHING, AND GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION OF CHRISTIAN MATERIALS AND CHURCH SUPPLIES UNDER ITS FIFTH PRESIDENT/CEO, LADONNA BOYD.
R.H. Boyd Publishing Corporation has a longstanding tradition of producing, publishing, and distributing biblically sound and culturally relevant Christian education resources, materials, and church supplies for more than 125 years. Since its inception in 1896, R.H. Boyd has taken great pride in meeting the needs of all Christians, with a targeted focus on the needs of the African-American community. The company works with many churches, pastors, bookstores, distributors, seminaries, authors, and conference attendees that trust R.H. Boyd with their church, business, non-profit, and personal faith needs.
Each June, R.H. Boyd hosts the Vision Conference (formerly the National Baptist Congress), a leading Christian education conference and fellowship gathering for all ages. R.H. Boyd Publishing Corporation and the National Baptist Congress are the leading resources for telling the African-American story through print, multimedia channels, events, and serving as industry experts. Combined, these entities are positioned to assist in the alleviation of social concerns and injustices, in addition to continuing to fulfill the need for Christian education resources and fellowship opportunities.
In the words of the fifth generation CEO, LaDonna Boyd, “The importance of the Black voice and narrative is unquantifiable, as this nation was built on the strength and perseverance of our ancestors. We have to tell our stories and write our dreams. As a publishing company, we are storytellers. We have the ability to shape the minds and experiences of the masses. As a Christian company, we have the significant responsibility and opportunity to draw people into the Kingdom through the written Word.”
