Welcome To Our Conference!

The time is now!  Today’s technology offers more opportunities than ever for women in Christian media to boldly and faithfully proclaim God’s truth over the airwaves, internet and print media. I want to encourage you to join us for another tremendous time of education and inspiration at our national conference. We will have the honor of learning from exceptional teachers and speakers.  We will also have the privilege of hearing from top media personalities in our Top Media panel, as well as learning about the latest trends in our highly informative educational seminars.  We’ve even added more timely and informative seminars for this year!

Who Should Come?
If you are a woman in Christian media, a Christian woman in secular media or a Christian leader, this is for you. You do not have to be a member to attend.

Our Theme This Year ~ "For Such a Time As This"

When we join together as women in Christian media, we are not only strengthened in our work, but we are also encouraged in our hearts. Just as Esther stood strong for God’s people many years ago, we too have the opportunity to stand strong as women who proclaim the message of truth. You won’t want to miss the fellowship and the growth that will take place once again at this years’ event. I look forward to seeing each one of you “for such a time as this.”

Journey Together in Prayer
The Prayer Room will be open during the conference.

If we are to make a stand for Christ, we must first be on our knees in prayer. Please join us for a time of prayer as we seek God’s face together. What better way to rise up for such a time as this than to gather together before the throne of grace to seek His blessing and direction.
