Founded in 1984, a group of women in Coraopolis, PA saw the need for a multigenerational Bible Study for Christian women and a ministry for those struggling or seeking to know more about Christian faith. As a result, they joined together for the purpose of starting a women's ministry that would serve as a beacon of light and hope.
In 1985, after much collective and individual prayer, they formalized the ministry and created the non-profit, Women In Christian Ministries, Inc. (WICM) to denote the plurality of ministries that would support women in their homes, in the local community, and throughout the world.
These ministries are multi-faceted in spreading the Gospel and fostering faith in Jesus Christ. All of these efforts are implemented with an unreserved commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the joy of entering his kingdom.
Today, in addition to our Christian Education Program, WICM offers Transitional housing to women who are victims of Domestic violence for up to 18 months, that have been in 30 day shelters or referred to us by other agencies.
These women must meet our criteria and agree to follow our rules and regulations. They must agreee to be counseled by our certified counselor or outside counselors who will connect them with agencies for further assistance as needed.
Our purpose is to extend God's love to all women, to equip them in the Word of God and the power of prayer to restore them to wholeness and victorious living.
