Why does Media matter?
Because people matter.
And media shapes people and people shape media.
“Those who tell the stories rule society.” – Plato
“When the storytelling goes bad in society, the result is decadence.” – Aristotle
“Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today…”- Robert McKee
“All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable.” – Matthew 13:34
WE CONNECT WE SERVE WE PRAY
Since its founding in 1985, Mastermedia International has quietly and confidentially served media professionals, offering insights regarding America’s Christian community and creating an honest dialogue around issues of faith. In building meaningful trust relationships between media leaders and the Christian community at large, Mastermedia seeks to be a positive and redemptive influence in media and entertainment by providing support, encouragement, and confidential counsel to media leaders and influencers, and mobilizing a global prayer effort on their behalf.
One major media CEO told me, “For us, ‘angry Christian’ is the only kind we know.” That’s why a person of influence in media filled with the love of Christ is the single most revolutionary ingredient in changing culture.

We invite you to join us in praying through the Media Leader Prayer Calendar. The calendar is published quarterly and provides the name of a media executive and a cultural influencer to pray for each day. Please pray for God’s personal impact in their lives; for His guidance, wisdom and protection; and for them to come to a deeper relationship with Him. Pray for God to infuse media with messages of sacrificial love, redemption, and hope.
