About The Positive Community Magazine
The Positive Community is the only faith-based lifestyle magazine targeted at the African American consumer in the dynamic New York/New Jersey market. As its tagline demotes, the magazine focuses on the Good News from the Church and the Community.
The Positive Community fills a void that exists in dominant media, which provides little or no attention to the best of what is happening in the Black Church and community. It was the co-founder's vision to create a balanced medium that accurately reflects the community-building efforts of churches, small businesses, corporations, and concerned individuals. The publication would also be able to compete in the marketplace, giving advertisers access to a growing faith community, via a much-needed alternative to mainstream media.
Now in its twentieth year of publication, The Positive Community continues to grow in circulation and influence as a leadership chronicle. In addition to the monthly publication, The Positive Community participates in and co-sponsors church and community events that focus on health and financial literacy-related issues.
Unlike many periodicals that focus exclusively on celebrities, The Positive Community readers are delighted to see their own pastors, neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family members in a glossy magazine format that is well-designed, colorful, and easy to read.
