Our Story

GBP was founded by Bob Vogt and Jim Masterson on April 2nd, 1991 with the idea to produce a stewardship/directory book for congregations that would be directly mailed into each member’s home.

They started the business out of their homes, moving into their first office building in 1992. In 1993, GBP purchased their first press equipment and hired their first pressman, who is still with the company today. On June 14th, 1999, GBP moved into its current headquarter building to provide room for more departments, expanded press capabilities, and more storage space.

In January 2004, Bob Vogt bought out Jim Masterson’s partnership interest and D.A. Robbins & Bill Fisher became partners with Bob. During the 2009 depression, they expanded printing capabilities and quality with the installation of new digital presses. In 2013, GBP partnered with an Evansville company to launch Online Directories & Mobile Apps for their congregations bringing in the opportunity for online advertising in addition to the valued printed books.

Most recently in 2019, Bill Fisher and Amanda Vogt have bought out D.A. Robbins partnership interest. Together with Bob Vogt, they are looking forward to continued growth and product development through the installation of the first Canon Titans 6180s in the St. Louis area, bringing faster, cleaner, and crisper printing for the Guide Book & Directories.

GBP is now serving over 850 congregations and over 8,000 businesses each year in 25 states.

Thank you for opening this opportunity to serve our people more effectively. Your publication adds to the pride our people have in their parish.

Pastor at Christ Our Savior in Struthers, Ohio
