For seminaries, coming up with sustainable revenue-generating ventures is often imperative. But schools must consider whether those ventures support their mission and values. When you're able to combine mission and money, you’ve got yourself a winner.
For St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in Yonkers, New York, that winning venture is St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press. The Autumn issue of In Trust features an article about the seminary’s publishing house, examining its history and business model.
St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press actually generates revenue for the school. But more importantly, the publishing house helps the seminary carry out its mission of sharing Orthodox theology, both inside and outside the Orthodox community.
