Welcome to the new Christian Editors Association website. I know you were expecting the Christian Editor Network website, but no worries, you’re in the right spot. Same great resources, but a new name that better reflects our purpose and goals.

On September 1, 2022, Christian Editor Network changed to Christian Editors Association. CEN served Christian editors for almost six years through its four divisions (shown below), and the same amazing team will continue to do so under our new name.

Christian Editors Association
