For the past two years, he has risen in leadership to oversee the content strategy and assist with the marketing for the Resurgence, part of Mars Hill Church. Resurgence produces and markets dozens of books as well as regional and national conferences.

Amanda Sloan, senior vice president of marketing is thankful he has joined her team.

“B&H continues to grow in the trade division and having a marketing leader like Jesse at the helm will help us continue growing and reaching people with the message of Christ,” Sloan said. “Jesse’s experience in the church and his ability to interact with the church will help guide our marketing to better reach Christian readers.”

B&H’s commitment to publishing content that is not only faithful to God and His Word, but also aims to connect people with Jesus Christ is what attracted me to the company to become a part of their team.”
