MediaCom

MediaCom is an ecumenical religious communications agency providing resources and training for the mainline churches of Australia. Serving the church for over 30 years, it produces a wide range of materials in the areas of Worship and Christian Education for clergy and church leaders. Since our founding in 1980 by Rev Dr Tony & Christine Nancarrow, we have grown from a small home based venture into one of the largest publishers of lectionary based curriculums, and religious magazines and periodicals in the country. In excess of 20,000 churches and individuals use our resources. MediaCom is an official agency of the South Australian Synod of the Uniting Church in Australia.

MediaCom's CEO

Rev Dr Ian Price is Chief Executive Officer.
Ordained in 1978, Ian served three parishes in the Uniting Church in Australia, served briefly in New South Wales as the Executive Director of the UCA’s Board of Education, was MediaCom’s Associate Director from 1998 to 2002, and spent the last nine years heading the Uniting Church in South Australia’s Mission Resourcing Network with responsibilities in mission to children and youth, ministry with indigenous people, engaging in international mission partnerships, as well as rural and urban mission planning.
Ian is deeply committed to bringing the best resources to the Christian Church in discipleship, worship, faith formation and missional effectiveness. Through publishing, book and magazine distribution and consultancy, he seeks to serve the church with excellence.
