 Gospel Light's Bio:
The Gospel Light Heritage

Henrietta C. Mears was one of the great Bible teachers of the 20th century. While Christian Education Director at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she built one of the largest Sunday Schools in the world and wrote curriculum that was in such high demand that to publish it she founded Gospel Light in 1933. Such notable Christian leaders as Richard C. Halverson, Luis Evans, Jr. and Bill Bright were among her students. Miss Mears developed "cradle-to-grave" age-appropriate curriculum, published a new style of Vacation Bible School, and lent her support to distributing Gospel materials around the world.

Gospel Light has expanded into a multi-faceted publisher of fun and creative Sunday School curriculum (Network 34, Planet 56, Little Blessings), exciting Vacation Bible School programs and inspiring biblical books (Regal). The mission of Gospel Light is still the same today as it was in 1933: "To know Christ and to make Him known."
