Women In The Beginnings of the Modern Missions Movement

by Edward Murray | July 31, 2008

Tracing the significant role women have played in missions from the beginnings of the modern missions movement in the eighteenth century to today, this session will focus on Count Ludwig von Zinzendorf and his movement known as The Moravian Brethren that took the gospel to every inhabited continent of his day. Zinzendorf’s perspective on the role of women in missions, along with his ordination of women to the ministry was far ahead of his time and paved the way for the significant influence women have had in missions in the past three centuries.
