Christine Abraham is a real blonde, red-cup coffee drinker, California native, mother of teens, married 25 years to a project manager. She meets with friends at local coffee shops to talk about faith and family. She’s the Founder and Ministry Director of Womens Bible Cafe™ an online community with more than 200,000 women around the world. We study, connect, and grow in faith together.
She completed a Graduate of Theology degree from Liberty University and leads online studies for women from various Christian denominations.
Christine helps people deepen their faith through Bible study and by reading Christian books. She is passionate about her relationship with the LORD and encourages others to strengthen their own identity in Christ.
In 2009 Christine just started blogging and accepted an invitation to review books for publishers. When the first book arrived with a deadline- she laughed. Christine already had four copies of “A Different Kind of WILD” by Debbie Alsdorf (Revell) and the author was the women’s ministry leader at her church. “It felt like God was hitting me on the head with this book and I knew I had to pay attention and read it,” explains Christine.
While studying the WILD acronym – Women in Lifelong Development- Christine sensed a unique happening during her local small group each week. Many women were struggling to attend and dropping out. One woman was taking care of a special needs child and her attendance was inconsistent. Another woman was a celebrity and anything she shared would become front page gossip in three hours. The leader arrived in a wheelchair and oxygen tank after a long battle with anorexia. Christine’s friends were in hospitals caring for children with long-term illness. The teachers at her children’s Christian school were unable to meet when local small groups gathered once a week.
God magnified the need and Christine responded in faith.
In 2009 she asked 14 women to join her online once a week for Bible study. Over time and with love, the audience grew into 200,000+ women and inspired several other online Bible study ministries. She has facilitated over 60 online Bible studies since the Bible Cafe opened as a place to Study. Connect. Grow.
Making Bible study accessible and available to women around the world has been her driving passion as a Ministry Director today. Christine has a coaching program to equip leaders to start their own online Bible studies and book clubs.
“If there is one word to describe me, it’s obedience. My life is surrendered to Jesus and fueled by His love.” Christine Abraham
Christine lives in California with her husband of 25+ years and their two daughters. She’s always sipping lattes at local cafes with family and friends.
Christine calls herself a Bible nerd. Her life work is to disciple women and teach them to magnify Christ. She wants to partner with Jesus to help women KNOW they are forgiven, loved, and treasured in the eyes of God.
Christine works with these goals: “loving Jesus with all my heart, day and night. Where He goes, I go. When He calls, I follow. I am a girl of obedience and seek to magnify Christ in myself and others. It’s as simple as that.”
