Editorial—Design—Composition—Self-Publishing—Project Management

The founders of Livingstone, Bruce Barton, Dave Veerman, and James Galvin, worked in executive positions in Youth for Christ.

In the early 1980s, challenged to begin a publishing enterprise within YFC’s ministry, they began the creative process of developing several books (including Parents & Teenagers and Youth Evangelism (Gold Medallion winners), Scripture Press/Victor Books; Practical Christianity, Tyndale House Publishers) and numerous guides and meeting plans for youth group leaders. Then began the biggest project of all. In a partnership between YFC and Tyndale House, Bruce, Dave, and Jim, and Ron Beers (now of Tyndale House) created a study Bible that would go with The Living Bible text. After several years and thousands of hours of hard work, the Life Application Study Bible was published in 1988, and, at the same time, Livingstone was born.

That was nearly 30 years ago. Since then, Livingstone grew to 17 employees, and completed over 220 specialty Bibles and more than 500 trade books, devotionals, gift books, and curriculum products. Bruce and Dave continue to guide the company in meeting the goal of helping publishers get their ideas to the marketplace. Geoff Dennis and Ashley Taylor lead the production and composition work: Geoff as President, Sales and Marketing and Ashley as Chief Operating Officer.

Through these three decades, Livingstone’s products have won dozens of publishing awards.

Livingstone is named after the famous explorer, David Livingstone. The founders believed he captured the heart and essence of their personal vision—to mark new territory, explore new vistas and serve people, while advancing the Good News of Jesus Christ. This founding vision is still central to Livingstone’s DNA and culture today.
