Cultivating Gets a New Domain!

September 24, 2023

Lancia E. Smith


As is the case with living entities, whether we want it to or intend it, change often comes simply as proof of life. Sometimes it is hard evidence of growth. One of the distinct changes we are making here is that kind of change – proof of life and hard evidence of growth. The changes we are making reflect deep growth and maturing in our understanding of our calling, and they make room for growth that is yet unfolding. 

We have changed of the name of our website and our domain! We are now Cultivating Oaks Press. Our new domain is 

We have not changed sites, purpose, style, or mission. What we are doing is planting our flag regarding the kind of entity we have grown into and are called to be as we continue to grow: a publishing house as well as a discipling ministry. While it may be a bit confusing to make this adjustment now, for the long run we pray that our efforts will serve to clarify who we are, what we do, and why we do it. 

We are still Cultivators. We are still home to The Cultivating Project. We still publish Cultivating Magazine.  We still love keeping company with you. 

What we offer under our legal name is access to the same beautiful publications that you love – the seasonal editions of Cultivating Magazine, but now more easily identified and searched. And now, for the first time Cultivating Magazine will be offered bi-annually in PRINT. Our seasonal online editions will continue just as they have since we first launched. What this change allows us to do is grow forward. It sets foundation for us to launch our YouTube channel of interviews and talks, and within the next year offering our first print books

This change also offers some much welcomed clarity about our name. Cultivating Oaks Press is the publishing house of Cultivating Magazine and a suite of related publications created by the fellowship members of The Cultivating Project and our Guest Contributors. It is my deep hope that this helps make our identity and purpose clearer and easier to distinguish! 

Our new logo is a fitting one for Cultivating Oaks Press – a grown but still growing oak tree, full-leaved with strong branches and strong trunk, planted deep in solid, level  ground.  In the life span of a tree, it is young with years and years of life yet ahead for it, full cycles of seasons from leaf to acorn to new life. In the years to come, I pray you see this logo on many book and magazine spines, and at many conferences, workshops, and training sessions. We humbly ask for your continued good company and your prayers that we flourish for the sake of God’s Kingdom in this beloved world and the next.
