Syntax Creative Announces the Addition of Our Daily Bread Ministries’ ‘Discovery House’
February 17, 2015
Growth Expected From Both Companies By This New Partnership
Syntax Creative is delighted to announce the signing of the Grand Rapids-based Discovery House, publishers of the well-loved Our Daily Bread and My Utmost for His Highest devotionals. Three new projects through this partnership are Canticles of Praise: A Collection of Irish Hymns, Classical Praise: Piano & Trumpet and He Lives: Instrumental Easter Favorites, which are all available for pre-order at iTunes now.
“I am looking forward to building on the foundation Discovery House already has, as I sign and develop new talented and like-minded artists,” John van der Veen, Director of Marketing at Our Daily Bread Ministries, said. “We think Syntax Creative will be a key part of our growth, as we prepare to ramp up our label’s operations.”
“I first met John van der Veen when I was 19 years old. At the time, he was the music buyer for Family Christian. So at least in my mind, he was the most powerful man in the entire Christian music industry. I was intimidated to say the least,” Tim Trudeau, CEO of Syntax Creative, said. “Thankfully, he turned out to be a really nice guy, and I’m excited to say that we’re finally working together again.”
Discovery House Publishers is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization that invests a portion of its proceeds into missions work around the world.
“It is our desire to provide multi-generational, multi-genre-based music that will feed one’s soul,” says van der Veen. “We are on a mission to proclaim Christ to every listening ear. After 22 years in the business, I’ve never been more excited to release music! The technology that is available now — along with the digital platform Syntax offers — will help us to strategically find new listeners while continuing to serve the current ones.”
“It is with great joy that I can tell the world that I will officially be working with John as well as the rest of Discovery House’s talented team,” Trudeau said. “They have a strong history and, together, we will have a strong future!”
Discovery House was established in 1987 as a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization with a vision to supply accessible, timely, trustworthy and reasonably-priced materials to foster growth. Whether you’re looking for books, music, video, audio, software, greeting cards or content to download, they provide materials that demonstrate the relevance of vibrant faith and equip and encourage you in everyday life. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Discovery House product is reinvested into global kingdom growth and development, providing resources to help establish indigenous Christian publishing throughout the world.
