    History of the Christian Women's Connection

    Christian Women's Connection(CWC) is an outreach ministry founded by First Lady Tanisha Townsend and Elder Minister Judy Tripp in July 2000.  CWC is an organization that is focused on giving back to  our communities and glorifying God through community service and worship.

    The aim of the CWC is to ensure that the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of women are met in their communities by Christian women working together.

    Ever since its conception, CWC has been founded on the principle of unity; women coming together, regardless of color, denomination, race, or any other barriers to lift up their voices in worship and drop to their knees in prayer for the state, the city, and the nation.

    Christian Women's Connection will serve to unite believers from all denominations in prayer and fellowship while simultaneously ministering to and equipping all the women we can reach.
