The Christ in Media Institute, empowered by the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, promotes research and education focused on employing God's gift of mass media to bring the pure Gospel message to vast audiences both in the US and abroad. It does not engage in media production, but rather aims to develop and gather the expertise required for the effective production and distribution of Christian media in a variety of cultures. The project embraces the theology of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod and is supported by a grant from the Antioch Foundation.
On June 23, 2009 members of the Bethany Lutheran College faculty and staff set up foundations for the CMI group to build upon. To access the papers written by Bethany faculty, please check out our Foundations page.
