Cokesbury is pleased to offer its most popular titles, UM official resources, and speakers’ books in quantity through on-site sales at Annual Conference 2019 at Cokesbury Resource Centers.
This year’s Cokesbury Resource Center will look different as we continue to be responsible stewards of resources, the environment and our staff, while providing the most popular Christian resources to our customers. There will be fewer items on-site, but those will include the Bishop’s recommended title, best sellers most often purchased by church professionals and volunteers, and UM logo items. Customers will also have the opportunity to be measured for and order clergy robes at a 15% discount.
Additional bishop recommendations, speaker books, and other titles and merchandise will be featured in a Conference-specific online catalog before, during and after Annual Conference across a two-month timeframe. This allows for greater exposure of these resources to more conference attendees for a longer period of time.
As always, free ground U.S. shipping is offered on orders of regularly stocked merchandise not available on-site at the Cokesbury Resource Center.

“Since 1789, we have been committed to equipping church leaders to make disciples,” said Jeff Barnes, executive director of Cokesbury Operations. “We are a self-supporting general agency. Like churches, we must be especially mindful of ever-increasing expenses. Adaptation is key so we can continue to meet the needs of our customers and provide the everyday low prices expected so they can be wise stewards of their resources.”
Cokesbury and Abingdon Press are part of The United Methodist Publishing House, the oldest and largest general agency of the United Methodist Church. UMPH, a fully self-supporting agency, continues to adapt to best serve United Methodist churches in a self-sustainable and responsible manner, while keeping its mission at the forefront. That mission is “reaching more people in more places with quality services and resources that help them come to know and deepen their knowledge of God through Jesus Christ, learn to love God, and choose to serve God and neighbor.”
