CPMA April 11 Morning Meeting Report
Fifteen media professionals joined together Thursday morning to welcome WSYR’s news anchor Nia Carter to the Christian Professional Media Alliance (CPMA) breakfast meeting at Denny’s in Liverpool.
Nia shared about her spiritual journey and how the Lord Jesus had made Himself known to her as a little 5 year old girl, and subsequently, how God’s Holy Spirit had led her into a dynamic spiritual life long adventure. Nia candidly explained how she had at times wrestled with the will of God, and how God’s faithful persistence had carried her through the tough times.
Nia Carter testified to some of the struggles in her early days of news reporting. She faced obstacles of being an African American, a woman, a single Mom, and a Christian.
Nia also entertained some Q & A time with the attendees, and we concluded our time praying for Nia to stand firm and continue to be light in a dark world.
Our next CPMA meeting will be a lunch meeting Thursday May 9 at 11:30 am. Once again it will be a Denny’s on 7th North in Liverpool. Lunch is self-pay. Keep looking for more information.
