OVER 20 YEARS OF HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

In 1996, New Life Treatment Centers began staging the Women of Faith events. Women of Faith became the first original, non-denominational Christian women’s brand nationally. It has become one of the largest and most trusted women’s ministries worldwide and holding excellent iconic brand recognition. Thomas Nelson Publishers purchased a stake in New Life Treatment Centers in 2000 and subsequently transferred operation of the events to its live event subsidiary. Originally focusing on weekend events, it has also offered Revolve events aimed at teenage girls since 2005 and one-day evening events since 2012. The theme for the events changed yearly. The content has included speakers, comedians, music and drama alongside worship and prayer. In 2013 Women of Faith was purchased by the William Morris Agency from Harper Collins Publishers which had purchased Thomas Nelson in 2012.  William Morris Agency, now William Morris Endeavor (WME) sold Women of Faith in 2017 and was converted to a 501c3 non-profit ministry in 2018.

Women of Faith has and continues to be committed to strengthening and serving the trusted, thriving community of millions of women and helping them grow significantly, by providing resources to deepen their relationship with Jesus and elevating them in their God-given purpose. God has bestowed a large vision and the provision to elevate Women of Faith and the associated initiatives.

Women of Faith continues to be dedicated to encouraging and equipping women to be the revival in their local communities and all across the globe. Now is the time to empower more women to use their God-given gifts, talents, and experiences in their personal and home life, local church, workplace, and community.

Women of Faith Ambassadors are community leaders focused on authentically connecting women as a community both online and offline, growing spiritually, and becoming further equipped to elevate their influence and leadership. Our Ambassadors lead and build our community in order to lead more into God’s kingdom.

Women of Faith now specializes in the use of all forms of media & technology as a conduit to connect people to people and exponentially grow friends and community globally and to create disciples.   This allows the ministry to better serve today’s demands of instant access to excellent content and to further inspire, elevate and empower engaging communities to fully thrive 24/7, 365 days per year and all across the globe.  This allows Women of Faith to reach more women and to have more impact in growing God’s Kingdom.

We invite you to IMAGINE… the cross being deeply planted to strengthen God’s kingdom and turning into a global movement of revival. We see the Women of Faith community being a catalyst for reaching new groups of women across the globe for Jesus. Lean in and discover what it looks like to partner with Women of Faith right now and beyond. The ministry paves the way for exponential growth and for the launch of new, sustainable opportunities, programs and initiatives globally.
