Seven Faith-Based Paying Markets for Writers By Biljana Tadic

There are plenty of faith-based magazines that accept articles from freelance writers. They cover topics such as faith in daily life, prayer, and biblical issues, but also family, health and relationships. Some of them accept personal essays on how religion has changed your life, or helped you overcome life’s difficulties.

Here is a list of seven Faith-Based Paying Markets for Writers:

Today’s Christian Living is a bimonthly magazine for Christians of all ages. They are looking for inspirational stories about faith, or ” how the Lord made an impact on a believer’s life, and one-page stories that show how important biblical principles and attributes like self-control, generosity, and sacrificial love are illustrated in everyday life”. Regular columns include health, humor, and book reviews. Payment is generally based on approximate word count after editing.

First Things is a journal of religion and public life. It accepts opinion pieces (1,000 to 2,000 words), feature articles (2,500 to 4,000 words) and book reviews (1,250 to 1,500 words). Writers must submit a query first. They also accept submissions of web articles, which usually run 800 to 1,000 words.

Ministry magazine is an international monthly journal for pastors. They accept general manuscripts (2,000-2,500 words) about pastoral family needs, theological studies that explore themes from a biblical perspective, and book reviews (up to 500 words). They pay after writer signed agreement.

US Catholic is a monthly magazine about faith, with a focus on social justice. They accept submissions for both-print and online publication, and are looking for feature articles, essays, opinion pieces, and reviews.
