Four and half years ago, Kingdom Pen began as a simple eMag comprised of articles, short stories, and poems. Primitively produced with Microsoft Word, Kingdom Pen was founded, run, and written for Christian teens, by Christian teens. It was free, and it was basic, maintained by volunteers.
Kingdom Pen has drastically changed since we began, though we are all still volunteers, and our content is still free. It is also still our goal to encourage a generation of Christian writers and artists to use their God-given talents to impact the world for good and advance God’s kingdom here on Earth. Our culture is starving for truth—the truth of Christ. As Christians, we have the potential, more than anyone else, to supply this truth. Kingdom Pen wants to be here for the long term to equip you—the bringers of truth.
As it stands right now, most of us on staff are not teens anymore. Now into our early 20s, many of our staff members are in college, and/or work two or three other jobs in addition to Kingdom Pen. Our free time is very limited so we are always looking for help and new talent to become tomorrow’s leaders of Kingdom Pen. The current Kingdom Pen staff members were once Kingdom Pen readers who responded to opportunities as they arose to lend their talents as writers, editors, graphic designers, content managers, administrators, and so on.
If Kingdom Pen is going to continue to thrive, it will be as a result of some of our current readership stepping up into active participation as members of the Kingdom Pen staff.

If you enjoy Kingdom Pen, and share our vision of encouraging young authors to write for Christ and advance His kingdom here on Earth, then we would love your help in this endeavor! There are many different things you can do to join in and aid Kingdom Pen, and we would greatly appreciate any assistance you can offer.
Here are a few things you can do to help:
Pray for us as we seek first and foremost God’s will above all else. There are a lot of things we would like to do with Kingdom Pen, but they would not be good unless they were part of God’s will. So join with us in asking God to direct our paths into His purpose for this work.
