Aglow international began in 1967 in Seattle, Washington, USA, when four women expressed a desire to meet together as Christians without denominational boundaries. From an initial luncheon meeting of about 120 women, Aglow grew into an international ministry on six continents and in nearly 170 nations of the earth. Now there are Aglow meetings, retreats, conference and or conventions held regularly all around the world. The name Aglow comes from Romans 12:11 in The Amplified Bible:
“Be aglow and burning with the spirit”.
Primarily focusing on prayer and evangelism, Aglow women seek to bring women to Christ to strengthen their Christian walk. In cooperation with local churches, Aglow women hope to make a positive difference in their communities by helping meet practical and spiritual needs, and by bringing a Global vision from a Biblical perspective.
