In 2012 it announced a new structure with closer ties to the radio and education ministries of Moody Bible Institute (MBI). Long term goals include forming publishing teams on every continent by 2020, and the publication of books and products targeted at African-Americans, Latinos and urban influentials.[2]

Northfield PublishingEdit

Northfield Publishing was organized in the fall of 1992 to target the general trade market. Certain Christian phraseology and scriptural references are omitted in the books it publishes to avoid reader confusion. The line offers books covering such topics as finances, self-help, and relationships from a contemporary, yet biblical perspective. Leading the Northfield line is Gary Chapman's The Five Love Languages.

Lift Every VoiceEdit

The second is Lift Every Voice Books (LEVB) is a joint imprint of Moody Publishers and the Institute for Black Family Development.

The LEVB imprintThe Payton Skky and Carmen Browne Series by author Stephanie Perry Moore; A Heart of Devotion, Zora's Cry and the Truth About Love by Tia McCollors; Crossing Jhordan and A Love So Strong by Kendra Norman Bellamy; and Taking Care of Business and What to do When Your Money is Funny by Lee Jenkins; and Vessel of Honor by Melvin Cobb.
