Pearl Mag is a non-profit literary magazine publishing curiously good content with a Christian worldview.

Pearl Mag spits out good stories and essays that bring value to your downtime. We’re here to make you think, laugh, and sometimes cry. The stories we share have been written by real people and meet our guidelines for Kingdom Literature.

While most of the content we publish is nice enough, it’s not our goal to only produce “safe space” Christian work. We encourage our writers to explore the hard and dark stuff of living on planet Earth, and balancing that with the real love and redemption offered by Jesus Christ.

The Pearl is a project of the The Company, a community of Christian writers on a secret mission to change the world.
