Company History

In 1881, Daniel Sydney Warner first published The Gospel Trumpet, a new religious periodical. The Gospel Trumpet Publishing Company was established as the voice and publishing house of the Church of God Reformation Movement. The movement was founded on Christian unity and holiness.

The Gospel Trumpet Publishing Company was located in several cities before its final move to Anderson, Indiana in 1906. The publishing company, whose name was changed to Warner Press in 1963, was the center of the Church of God Reformation Movement, with all church offices and the annual camp meeting convening in Anderson, Indiana.

Through the years, Warner Press expanded in size and product offerings to include many Christian gift and stationery items. In 1996, the decision was made to refocus on our initial purpose. Today, our product offering centers on the needs of the Church. Warner Press provides and distributes church resources, children’s products and greeting card assortments for our partners in ministry.
