The Congregationalist Submissions
News Briefs

We welcome submissions of happenings in local churches, state and regional associations, and throughout the Congregational community, including upcoming events. News briefs should provide value beyond purely local interest. We ask that all submissions include at least one related photograph to accompany the submission in the magazine. If you’d like to submit a news brief, please contact the editor.

Feature Articles

Feature articles are pieces of content intended to stand alone in the magazine. They can include commentary, history, theological reflection, how-to churchmanship, fictional short stories, poetry, art, and more. They should reflect the theme of the issue they are submitted to. Please contact the editor prior to composing feature articles to ensure the piece is of interest before investing time and effort in its preparation.


The Congregationalist reaches more than 6,000 readers each quarter, including a high concentration of active leaders in local Congregational Christian churches across the United States. As such, the magazine is an attractive platform for advertising, offering a prime audience and reasonable rates. For an up-to-date advertising kit, contact the editor.
