SparkLit advances God’s Kingdom by empowering Christian writers, publishers and distributors.
We make Christian books available, accessible and affordable where commitment is strong but support and resources are scarce.
We stimulate life-changing Christian writing. Our strategy is to direct funds, expertise and energy to publishers where indigenous Christian writing is needed most. As a result, lives, communities and cultures are transformed as people discover Jesus in a way that’s authentic and culturally meaningful.
