John Herring is the CEO of Iron Stream Media. John has been serving churches and Christian entities for 35 plus years. He continues to support the work of the church in the areas of publishing, curriculum development, strategic thinking/planning, discipleship, staff development, mentoring, and connecting the dots between ministries and people. He is also an entrepreneur, having started several small businesses. John can see the potential of connections everywhere, especially between ministries and ministry suppliers. His favorite discussions include his Lord, his family (especially his new grandson, Westin), missions, business as ministry, and coffee.
Iron Stream Media is an emerging media company, which now holds Life Bible Study, a “direct to church” provider of curriculum and discipleship materials, and New Hope Publishers, a traditional trade publisher. In the fall of 2019, Iron Stream acquired Lighthouse Christian Publishing of the Carolinas. John and his team are busily assimilating and restructuring the company for the recent acquisition.
Iron Stream Media derives its name from Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” This sharpening describes the process of discipleship, one to another. With this in mind, Iron Stream Media provides a variety of solutions for churches, missionaries and non-profits ranging from in-depth Bible study curriculum, Christian book publishing to custom publishing and consultative services. Through our popular Life Bible Study, Student Life Bible Study, and New Hope brands, we provide web-based full-year and short-term Bible study teaching plans as well as printed devotionals, Bibles, and discipleship curriculum.
