Media Associates International (MAI) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) publicly supported Christian agency primarily assisting third world Christian nationals in becoming more effective creators, producers, distributors, and users of the printed page and other media. MAI provides on-the-job training and technical assistance to increase skills in Christian communication, management, and market research. Christian writing by national Christian authors is encouraged through modest economic assistance as funds are available.

MAI is expanding our global publisher training with the launch of free monthly webinars led by international trainers. Christian publishers and writers in many countries feel isolated, and many lack opportunities for professional development. Webinars offer them a platform to connect them with the world's best trainers. No other such webinars exist for global Christian publishers.
We will equip leaders of two important Christian publishing houses in French-speaking Africa during training visits to CPE publishing house in Cote d'Ivoire and Press Bibliques Africaines (PBA) in Benin. Our goal is to help these publishers become financially self-sustaining and to publish more local authors who will build up the church and impact society in the 21 French-speaking countries of Africa.
