Arise is a 2 day / 2 night event that challenges the character of women and builds trust and unity. The weekend starts on a Friday night and ends on the following Sunday afternoon.
During the weekend, women turn over their watches, phones, wallets and car keys. Only the items on the packing list provided are allowed. No extra food. No cigarettes. No alcohol. The women walk considerable distances carrying their backpacks with their equipment.
Along the route the spiritual leaders of Arise speak short messages to take women on a self discovery of their godly identity, often accompanied with a practical assignment to build on the biblical lesson.
