Harrisonburg, VA — MennoMedia and Kindred Productions have reached an agreement for MennoMedia to assume full ownership of the quarterly devotional magazine Rejoice!. Beginning with the Fall 2022 issue, all Kindred Rejoice! subscribers will transfer to MennoMedia. Kindred subscribers will receive a letter with their summer issue explaining how their subscription will be handled after the transfer.
“We want to make the transition as seamless as possible for all Kindred subscribers,” said Amy Gingerich, MennoMedia publisher. “We look forward to serving them for many years and want to start our relationship off right.”
MennoMedia and Kindred reached the agreement in March 2022.
“Financially and logistically, it made the most sense for Kindred Productions to transfer all ownership of Rejoice! to MennoMedia,” said Carson Samson, Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches operations and communications director. “The Rejoice! devotionals are a regular part of many readers’ lives, and we are pleased they can continue to receive them each quarter.”
MennoMedia, the publishing arm of Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada, and Kindred Productions, the Mennonite Brethren publisher, first partnered on Rejoice! in 1972.
