In addition to proclaiming the 'good news,' these women built institutions, like rescue homes & missions, churches & denominations, religious training schools, etc.
Unfortunately, the captivating stories of these fascinating women has been absent from the history of American Evangelicalism.
Dr. Priscilla Pope-Levison has rescued their stories from dusty shelves and brought them to us in her book "Turn the Pulpit Loose: Two Centuries of American Women Evangelists." You can find more information on her book here. She will be sharing with us and leading a conversation around the inspiring lives and works of these women.
As usual, we will meet at In The Red in Phinney Ridge. Wednesday, January 25th at 8pm. See you then!
