ARISE MINISTRY

Be A Tree of Life

ARISE MINISTRY wants to ARISE and spread the good news of Jesus Christ by building up the "Body of Christ" here in Switzerland and all over the world. We want to grow deeper in Jesus and move by the Holy Spirit so we can be transformed and move in the newness of life He gave us when he proclaimed it is finished on Calvary. We are new creatures in Christ and we are called to set creation free. But how do we do that? We learn and grow together through meet-ups, conferences, weekend retreats and much more. 

We look forward to meeting you.

 

A DESIRE FOR FELLOWSHIP

Our Roots

ARISE WOMEN came into being in January 2018 (called Christian Women’s Fellowship then). I was a mom to two young kids (Ages: 3 and 1) at the time, and desperately wanted some fellowship with other christian women. Not only that, but I thought there must be others out there that need some uplifting and encouragement too. We can be that to each other, and grow in God! That is really the basis of it. Just a few young moms started to gather on a montlhy basis and it has gown from there. Where 2 or 3 are gathered in God’s name, there He is with them! I continue to stand on that promise and priveledge and get to see how He works by His Holy Spirit. Whether we are 2 women or 100, God is God and promises to show up and work miracles in our midst! That is where we find our strength and joy, knowing that He is a Father who loves us and cares for our cares and meets us. 
-Elizabeth Knechtli, Arise Ministry Leader

Waves

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green: and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 KJV
