The purpose of The Christian Working Woman is to equip and encourage Christians in the workplace to love Christ more, to live their daily lives by biblical principles, and to go to their jobs as ambassadors for Jesus Christ.
Founded by God’s servant:
The Christian Working Woman began in 1984 as an outgrowth of a ministry for workplace women that began at The Moody Church in Chicago, Illinois. Because of her own experiences of being a Christian in the marketplace, Mary Whelchel had a burden to encourage women and to teach them sound biblical principles in order to equip them to live godly lives in their workplaces. Little did she know that the radio program which had its humble beginnings on one station in Chicago would now be heard on over 500 stations and crossing international boundaries! Since its beginning The Christian Working Woman has become a non-profit organization currently producing two radio program formats, distributing books and materials, providing web resources, and organizing retreats and conferences in the United States and abroad.
Committed to God’s word:
The ministry is based on the very firm and unwavering belief that God’s Word, the Bible, is without error and is the sole measure of everything we believe and speak. We believe that Jesus Christ alone is the way to God and eternal life. We wholeheartedly believe that God’s Word is totally relevant to everything we face today, and can give us the roadmaps we need for the challenges we encounter as workplace Christians.
Supported by God’s people:
The Christian Working Woman is an independent non-profit 501c(3) organization, and is supported by friends and listeners. It is our prayer that God will burden the hearts of those touched by our radio and website ministry to support the ministry regularly. We have seen God meet our needs since we began in 1984, and are convinced He will continue to do so.
Powered by God’s Spirit:
We depend on the prayers of God’s people to provide the essential underpinning for everything we do. As God leads you, would you please pray: that God will continue to guide the ministry that Mary will be inspired with God’s messages for her listeners and readers that those who believe in this ministry will continue to support us financially that we will always be good stewards of the resources and opportunities God gives us.
