Sixty women from 19 nations gathered for ‘Rise in Strength’, a global consultation held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, from 2-5 June 2019. The event provided a unique space to:
- provide data and stories about the roles and work of Christian women across the world
- call on the church to respond so that women and men can lead together more effectively
The consultation had no plenary speakers and instead focused on listening to the voices of as many women as possible through short presentations, small groups, and regional and issue-specific meetings. The resulting consultation statement, ‘Call to All Christians‘, builds on the Lausanne statement on women and men and will be made available in several languages.
‘Rise in Strength’ came from a partnership between the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) Women’s Commission and the Lausanne Movement’s Women in Evangelism network.
