Angelic harp music danced in the air while everyone waited in anticipation to find out why they were there. It was May 2, 2013 and eighty Christian Women and three men gathered together to celebrate the kick-off of the Christian Women Speakers Movement.
What an incredible evening! It started with the roar of a video bringing Arvee Robinson, Founder of the Christian Women Speakers Movement to the stage. Arvee shared her story of how God called her to create the Christian Women Speakers Movement to give women a place they could network, support, and inspire each other to do their best, and a place where they would no longer feel alone in their journey. Together we could take God from the church and have him join us on stage in the secular world and claim our rightful identity as women of faith who integrate God and business into our message.
And now it is reality.
Next, Florence LaRue, six time Grammy winner with the 5th Dimension, sang “With All My Heart,” and “O, Happy Day!” The energy in the room was electrifying as Arvee described the benefits of joining and getting in on the ground-breaking level. She also described that the vision of the movement is to bring God out of church and onto more stages, stand as a woman of faith and bring people to Christ.
