Arise values all women. Yet there is a very special place in our hearts for the women leaders of Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and beyond. These women live in difficulty we cannot fathom and they do so with dignity, grace and strength. Each one is beautiful, intelligent and determined to fulfill her God-given destiny!
Unity, belonging, love, touch - it takes all these words and more to describe the connectedness we feel at Arise. Women from many nations, embracing one another in genuine care and support...sisters!
The Word & the Spirit
The Word and the Holy Spirit engulf every gathering, and we encourage one another to 'hold fast to our profession of faith' and to 'give an account for the hope within us'. The spirit of each woman is infused with strength and peace igniting perseverance and determination!
The soul of any woman is a precious thing and the care of it is imperative. At Arise we make time for the soul. The cares of life have a way of creeping in and weighing down leaving us disappointed, discouraged, and depressed. Freedom is found when we are saturated in truth. Feeding the soul, deep within, with truth...permeates every aspect of Arise.
It's amazing how our creativity begins to flow again when our spirit and soul are whole! Ideas flow freely. Talents and abilities come alive, and the difficult becomes do-able with flair - life begetting life!
Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights and is the sum product of each of these values. The women of Arise do just that - Arise!
