3/22/2017 WEBINAR | Women as Prophets & Peacemakers
March 16, 2017
Announcement/News, Uncategorized, Webinar
As we celebrate Women’s History Month we also acknowledge the parts of our history and present that prevent women from rising into their full potential as peacemakers and prophets.
On our upcoming webinar we will dismantle the reasons that women have been kept out of leadership in the mission of peacemaking, hear how women are rising up regardless of permission and how peacemaking is reshaping the world through women.
You will leave this webinar inspired, empowered AND with the resources you need to be a powerful peacemaker.
