What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The digital age has made it more important than ever before for ministries and organizations to have an effective strategy for including media and digital strategies to fulfill the Great Commission. The Influence Lab focuses on regions where media training is not readily accessible like Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and South America, while also creating a pathway for Christian influence in entertainment and media through the work of Influence Women with an ultimate goal to impact global culture by changing the way we tell our story in today's digital and media-centric world.

“Influence Women” is raising up a confident new generation of female leaders in media, entertainment, arts and leadership. Our launching pad was Hollywood, but we’ve also opened chapters in Atlanta, Orange County and Nashville – serving motion picture, television, music, and digital media professionals in the growing production hubs across the U.S., with digital events reaching women worldwide.

Each Influence Women’s chapter is designed to network and mentor women by introducing them to influential industry voices, enriching their faith, and helping them release their creative talent. The women’s initiative includes online mentoring and devotional groups and monthly online events as well.

Our goal is to inspire, equip, and empower a new generation of women to actively pursue their dreams in media, entertainment, arts, and leadership.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through media teaching and training intensives around the world, we're empowering the next generation of pastors, leaders and Christian communicators how to effectively use media to share the gospel in today’s digital age. Additionally, Influence Women, as a women's initiative of The Influence Lab, is raising up a confident new generation of female leaders in media, entertainment, arts and leadership.

The need to share our message never changes, but how we share it does. We help pastors and leaders embrace the digital age with strategies that will help them effectively engage their culture with the gospel.
