What is REIMAGINING?
The Salvation Army International Women’s Ministries has issued a new challenge for Women’s Ministries –
“A CALL for The Salvation Army’s worldwide ministry to women to be fit for purpose for the 21st century.”
On February 12, 2020 Commissioner Rosalie Peddle (World President of Women’s Ministries) launched this exciting new plan for international Women’s Ministries for 2020 and beyond, including a new vision statement, new logo, and new Bible studies.
WOMEN’S MINISTRIES THE VISION:
Envisioning women to be
TRANSFORMED and EMPOWERED by the gospel to lead a Christlike life
ENRICHED mutually through local and global connections and support
EQUIPPED to fulfill their potential through lifelong learning and development
ENGAGED in social justice and action to positively impact the world
THE NEW LOGO:
The aim of this re-imagined logo is to bring light, life, and a freedom of spirit to all women around the world. Where thoughts, actions, and morals are, as they have always been, concentrated on the Bible and its universal message, this is still reflected in the new design.
The 5 zones are identified by the 5 birds emerging from the sun and the world which are represented as one. These elements are designed to inspire women from any culture or background that at the dawning of each day they are encouraged to unite as one voice and one body, where God’s love is always at the very centre of their being.
Access the new Bible Study: TIME TO BE HOLY HERE
These Bible studies are not intended to be exclusive to women’s ministries groups. They have been designed to be utilised in groups of all ages, cultures, nationalities, languages and genders. We are praying that God will use this resource far above anything we could ever dream or imagine.
