connect • equip • empower

Rise's mission is to connect, equip and empower people to build a Church where women thrive.


Rise is 100% donor-funded. We do not turn down events or say no to women because of money. When you give, you make the way for our Kingdom work to continue.

I’m really grateful I stumbled into this community last fall. After spending the weekend with Rise at the Festival of Faith and Writing, I’m struck thankful for the abundance of love, peace, and care in the house with those 20 women, and Holly, Molly, and Andrea who fostered it all so well.

what we do


We write blogs, curriculum, Bible studies and books that elevate women's voices with truth and tenderness.


We teach retreats, workshops, provide Sunday morning guest teaching and create custom events for churches & universities that cultivate authenticity, build community and encourage depth. For more information about partnering with Rise for your event send us a message.


Every woman has influence, from our neighborhoods to our churches and workplaces. We lead and lift up women leaders, supporting the unique important work they are doing.


We connect women from all over the country through events and online experiences. We celebrate, learn from and are stronger because of our diversity. Click subscribe above to join our mailing list to stay in the loop.


In 2019 we will open The Rise House, a retreat home where women can come to rest, be equipped and connect with other women.You can find more information here.

I have been full of gratitude for the Rise house at the Festival of Faith and Writing ever since I came home…it’s hard to believe it’s been a month, because everything is still so full and fresh in my mind, and I still get to hear from so many new friends almost every day.
