Kathy Armistead, Ph.D. is Publisher, General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, The United Methodist Church. She is the author, ghostwriter, or editor of more than 200 books. She helps writers craft marketable book ideas and write with clarity and purpose.

Publishing is a relationship business. My passion is to create academic books that will invigorate the historic mission of The United Methodist Church and stimulate the intellectual life of the church. It is also my plan to give access to international thinkers and voice to those who have been underrepresented.
