WOMEN IN INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP
RISE IN STRENGTH
Sixty women leaders from 18 nations gathered in Amsterdam June 2019 to celebrate the gifting, service and leadership of women in the Church across the globe. They mourned the injustices women suffer and called on Christians to take steps to honor women’s leadership in family, church and community.
The women leaders in business, theology, charities, media and church contexts came together for the ‘Rise in Strength’ consultation at the invitation of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) Women’s Commission and the Lausanne Movement’s catalyst group on women.
During three days of prayer, worship and sharing strategic ideas on the state of the world’s women, participants called on Church leadership to celebrate the contribution of Christian women to the work of God in the world. They also called the Church to recognize that gender inequality continues to be a barrier that diminishes the effective witness of the Gospel.
The world wakes. It’s time for us to consider together what we will take into the future and how we bring hope to the world.Rise In Strength 2021 is an online conversation taking the dreams, research and relationships of Rise in Strength to a new level - with new action.In 2019, 60 women leaders from across the globe met in Amsterdam. Together we wrote the Call to All Christians. The Call has been read and discussed; now we long for a fresh commitment and renewed vision to bring change for women and girls around the world.
MAY ALL WHO LOVE YOU, BE LIKE THE SUN WHEN IT RISES IN ITS STRENGTH.
