Calling, connecting, and commissioning women to be a powerful force for the Kingdom of God.

We believe that women who are equipped to live boldly for the gospel are a key to unlocking movements of the gospel in the world’s spiritually darkest places.

Through Arise, East-West helps women take action and follow the Holy Spirit to be bold and reach the lost by:

  • Calling women to live in the authority and identity given to us in Christ
  • Connecting women to each other through a mutual passion to see God move.

  • Commissioning women to be a powerful force for the Kingdom of God


Desired Outcome: Women will understand their role in the Great Commission and be equipped to go boldly together to bring the world an encounter with Jesus.
