Matthias Media is an award winning Australian evangelical Christian publisher. The business grew out of the ministry of Phillip Jensen and Tony Payne at St Matthias, Centennial Park, Sydney under the name St Matthias Press and Tapes. Many resources now published by Matthias Media were developed as part of the ministry of Campus Bible Study at the University of New South Wales. Since then the company has grown under the banner "Resources for growing Christians" and is now incorporated as a non-profit company under the name Matthias Media. Distribution in the UK is through an independent partner organisation and in recent years a US office has been opened (Matthias Media (USA)).

Beginning with The Briefing (a (now) monthly news and resource magazine for evangelical Christians), Two Ways to Live (an evangelistic tract developed by Phillip Jensen), and the pre-existing St Matthias sermon tape ministry, the company now publishes a range of bible studies, training courses, devotional guides, book and sermon CDs. Two Ways to Live and its sister publication Just for Starters were the official training resources for the Australian arms of the 1995 Billy Graham Global Mission.
