Promotions and Circulation Staff

Observer reps know Kirsten MacDonell, The Observer’s circulation manager, as the friendly person who oversees the subscription process including renewals, additions, cancellations, and address changes (these subscription services are now also available through this web site). If you have difficulty meeting the due date for returning your renewal list, please contact Kirsten by phone, fax, or e-mail. Otherwise all current subscriptions will automatically be renewed and invoiced.

New subscribers can be added any time (the price will be pro-rated according to your group’s renewal date). Those who cancel their subscription receive a final issue with a special wrapper inviting them to keep the magazine coming. Please note that changes can take up to two issues to go into effect.

For resources to help you promote The Observer in your church – including subscription envelopes, posters and banners – promotion manager Sharon Doran is your one-stop source. For special events, request some sample copies to hand out. And to build an entire Sunday worship service around The Observer, make sure to request a copy of our Observer Sunday Service.

Feel free to contact the subscription or promotion departments at any time with questions or information.
