New Berlin, WI (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Messner Publications Inc and Liturgical Publications Inc (LPi) announce the completion of the blending of their product lines and companies into a comprehensive stewardship communication source for Catholic parishes.
“My vision of bringing a complete stewardship communication product line to churches, helping them build stewardship-driven communities, came together even better than I imagined,” said Jeff Messner, President of Messner Publications.
Jeff continued, “Combining our stewardship communication services, directories, welcome packets, and calendars with LPi’s media resources and online products, including e-giving, websites, and private social networks, gives our customers a depth of product line that is unmatched. My biggest opportunity was leading LPi’s national sales meeting, educating reps on how to help churches with their stewardship efforts. This greatly accelerates the accomplishment of our mission to bring effective stewardship-building to all churches.”
Messner Publication’s success has been built by consulting with their customers on how to become stewardship communities, fully engaging their parishioners in their mission. The joining of Jeff’s vision and LPi’s investment and digital products combine to offer this complete package to any church nationwide.
“We are thrilled with the development of our relationship with Messner from a strategic marketing alliance to a merger of our two companies,” commented Paul Knaapen, CEO of LPi. “This is definitely a case where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. With the Messner family on board for the long term, we have the leadership necessary to transform from a church bulletin provider to a complete stewardship communication provider.”
With Jeff as president, Scott in sales, and Jerry Messner in production, as well as the increased financial investment from LPi, customers in the southeast US now have the Messner brand of customer service and attention they have come to know, combined with the additional printing capabilities and online products they know they need.
