Learning from the Past: Women and Modern Missions
What has changed over the last 100 years and why? This workshop offers a helpful historical perspective on the contribution of North American women to global mission over the past century. Surprising stories of courageous and faithful women whose impact is still felt can inspire and guide today’s mission practice.
