Abide Journal was founded by Josiah Rocke and Tyler Griffin in November of 2000. Tyler and Josiah met at a week-long Bible conference for youth. While talking, they both felt there was a lack of serious Christian magazines for youth to share their thoughts, needs, and experiences in. Abide was founded with these goals in mind.
Our first issue was printed in December of 2000, and was mailed to little more than 40 subscribers. Shortly afterward, Andrew Rocke joined the editorial team. As we have grown, we have used many programs, printers, and designs. We have also gotten to work with some wonderful artists, poets, and writers. We currently have six staff members and over 500 subscribers.
