Encouraging Women in Leadership in a High-Risk Context
In a country we cannot name due to security risks, the Summit was held for women who hold positions as ministry leaders, doctors, teachers, nurses, office managers and lawyers. These women live in a country and a culture where leadership is seen primarily as a man’s role. So having the opportunity to be affirmed in their giftedness as leaders was a huge encouragement to them.
As a result, many of the women made a decision to dedicate their lives to Jesus, pledging to live their lives for Him.
Many of them said the teaching they received was an answer to their prayers.
The comments from a few of the women remind us why we continue to bring the Summit to difficult regions of the world:
- In reference to Brene Brown’s teaching, one of the women said, “We have never heard such a deep and profound teaching.”
- “I am absolutely blessed to attend because this has solved many doubts and questions in my mind about who I am in God… His Daughter.”
- “What a wonderful teaching, indeed it’s a new revelation from God. Thank you so much for helping me realize the world is watching me… Yes, my testimony counts. Amen!”
