Formed in 1946 by the Southern Baptist Convention, and supported with Cooperative Program funds, Baptist Press (BP) is a daily (M-F) international news wire service. Operating from a central bureau in Nashville, Tenn., BP works with four partnering bureaus (Richmond, Va.; Atlanta, Ga.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Washington, D.C.), as well as with a large network of contributing writers, photographers and editorial providers, to produce BP News.

BP Sports, formed in September 2000, is a division of Baptist Press and provides scores and sports features from the 56 colleges and universities affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention as well as special features on Christian amateur and professional athletes and coaches across the sports spectrum.

Baptist Press circulates to 40 state Baptist newspapers with a combined circulation of 1.16 million, but also partners with a number of other Christian and secular media outlets, both in print and on the Internet, to expand the reach of both BP News and BP Sports. In addition to individual subscriptions, BP provides newsfeed and sportsfeed services that allow easy display of BP headlines, updated automatically with each new BP edition, on any website. BP News also publishes a weekly Spanish edition, BP en Español.
