History

TCWW uses the following to express its History:

The Christian Working Woman began in 1984 as an outgrowth of a ministry for workplace women that began and continues to this day at Moody Memorial 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!
