Friendship Press Key Team Members

Chief Executive Officer

Joseph V. Crockett

Joseph has worked in some role of religious service for all of his professional life. While his work in publishing began in the mid-1980s, his experiences as a teacher, researcher, author, and administrator have allowed him to observe, analyze, and understand many of the challenges publishers currently face. With an underlying commitment to church and community, it is music that weaves together the threads of his daily work and activities.

Editorial Director

Denise Janssen

Denise is a scholar, professor, author, and pastor. She lives with one foot in the academy and the other in the church. She knows all too well the struggle to find sources for quality resources that challenge and engage people around issues that matter. And her expertise is in honing ideas into resources that do just that. She is passionate about justice, grace, and learning new things. Oh, and good coffee!

President of the Board

A. Roy Medley

Roy, after many years in church leadership has “retired” but still enjoys serving Christ and Christ’s church in various ways, including serving as President of Friendship Press. Time with family and friends, domestic and international travel with his wife Pat, quiet moments on a lake fishing or tending flower beds, and teaching the youth class in his home church make for full and rewarding days.
