rise collective

 

The purpose of Rise Collective is to gather diverse women leaders and to build up and out their Spirit-breathed gifts. On the foundation that is Christ, together we can reach farther, love harder, and lead Rise better than we ever could alone. Our prayer is that the gifts of each woman in the Collective be graciously offered up for the common good of the Body.

Through Rise Collective and our extensive network of gifted women leaders, Rise is able to provide churches and organizations of all sizes and budgets with gifted teachers, worship leaders, visual and performing artists, and custom written material for almost any kind of event, from youth girls' retreats to summer camp workshops to leadership training.

Rise has a vision for women’s ministry that I had never heard before. One that was calling out women to be followers of Christ above all. Rise continues to call me to a higher standard in a way that I don’t think most women’s ministries usually have the boldness to do. And that, although its not always easy, is something that I have needed and has made me be a better disciple of Jesus hands down.
— Caren Hamilton

We gather women and men of all ages, ethnicities, socio-economic groups, political views, theological backgrounds, churches, and marital statuses, with special attention paid to traditionally marginalized women, to create and sustain inclusive communities where women are fully loved.
