About Us

Connecting Women in Purpose and Vision

Who We Are

Founded in 2002, we are a movement of Christian women who are impacting our culture through media. Formerly known as Women in Christian Media, our new name of Christian Women in Media Association better describes who we are. Christian women in media have influence and opportunity to impact our culture for Christ…for such a time as this.

For Such a Time as This…

Christian Women In Media’s theme is taken from Esther 4:14 as a powerful reminder that every day, and in every situation we need to be mindful of God’s purpose in our lives. We’re committed to helping women in our industry realize that purpose to its full potential— impacting our homes, work places, communities, churches and nation for Christ. And follow Esther’s example—to recognize God’s hand in our lives and respond. God has placed you where you are “for such a time as this…”

Our Mission Statement

Christian Women in Media Association (CWIMA) is a professional association dedicated to Connecting Women in Purpose and Vision. With a international platform focused on advancing Christian women in media, our members work in the fields of TV, Radio, Internet, Film, Publishing, Music, and Arts and Entertainment. Our organizational framework promotes and provides opportunities for industry networking, professional equipping, and spiritual refreshment.

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your Father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?-Esther 4:14
