Short Introduction

The European initiative Women in Leadership started in 1993 with international and interdenominational conferences – under the umbrella of Hope for Europe. This umbrella was created in 1992 by the European Evangelical Alliance (EEA), the Lausanne Movement and another international evangelistic initiative, to shape the future of a united Europe – after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain.

Vision

– to inspire, encourage and equip women for their personal life and in leadership
– to model, how God uses women in his Kingdom in a variety of ways
– to challenge women, to share the transforming Gospel with women in their country through united national initiatives.

Structure

A team of women from different European nations, who are rooted in the Evangelical Alliance, the Lausanne Movement or denominational and interdenominational networks, is planning and performing every second year a European wide conference. These gatherings are including ladies from some countries bordering Europe, like Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Azerbaijan and others.

Actually the team consists of 11 ladies from 8 nations (Finland, France, Germany, Latvia, Romania, Serbia, The Netherlands, UK).

Recommendations

* Women in Leadership is partnering with the „Global Consultation for Christian Women in International Leadership”, called Rise in Strength, and recommends the outcomes, like the “Call to All Christians” in ten languageswww.riseinstrength.net

* We recommend the study “Women and the Church”, done by the Irish Christian VOX Magazine and the “Young Women’s Christian Association”, which can be downloaded here.
