Dear Reader,

We are very thankful for the feedback to our invitation to be part of the first-ever Consultation for Women in International Christian Leadership!

Around 60 women leaders from across the world have responded to join the forum, we have initiated, to contribute ideas and dreams about women, faith and mission.
From Sunday June 2nd (evening) to Wednesday June 5th 2019 (lunchtime)
the ‘RISE IN STRENGTH’ Consultation will provide a unique space –

◦ to tap into your wisdom and experience to gauge what women around the globe face in their lives and how they contribute to the Church
◦ to provide data and stories about the roles and work of Christian women across the world
◦ to call on the Church to respond to our insights so that women and men can lead together more effectively.

At a time of increased division over the contribution and power of women, we want to be a voice of authority, experience and grace.

The venue of the meeting will be Hotel Van der Valk, close to the Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport International, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The registration is closed now.

Information about the results of the Global Consultation will be published at a given time on this webpage.

The ‘RISE IN STRENGTH’ Consultation is endorsed by leaders of the World Evangelical Alliance and the Lausanne Movement – global entities, that want to see women at the heart of reaching out to the world with God’s love and power.
