Soulmag recently inked a partnership agreement with American Bible Society for their 23rd and 24th issue of the magazine. ABS has a desire to help people in the urban context engage in scripture. ABS is supplying funding, content and additional distribution channels for the magazine both physically and digitally. Publisher Tommy "Urban D." Kyllonen said, "We are super excited about this new partnership with American Bible Society. We have built a relationship with them over the years working on several projects and they have a big heart to reach the urban culture. This is going to have a huge kingdom impact reaching urban youth and young adults."
Soulmag 23 features DJ Promote on the cover and is currently getting printed. The new issue also has articles featuring KJ-52's Guinness World Record for the team freestyle, Rapzilla.com's Stop The Traffic project, a new graffiti section, City Takers Documentary, a new fashion section and an overall theme addressing the fatherless crisis and human trafficking.
This will be the official magazine of Urban Youth Workers Institute 360 Conference in LA on May 15th-17th as 1,000 youth workers gather in LA. Soulmag also is in the final phase of developing their new custom app. The new issue will be available for free digital download in May when their new website soulmag.tv is launched.
10,000 physical copies will be printed of the upcoming issues as they'll be distributed for free at several ABS leadership events, Exponential Conference, UYWI 360 Conference, Ignite Conference, City Takers Movie Premiere and at Crossover Church. The magazine will be available for free digital download and will be promoted through Soulmag TV and ABS youth partners and other bible societies around the world.
