Aglow International is a trans-denominational organization of Christian women and men that some Christian leaders call a “global movement”
Aglow is established in 167 nations on 6 continents, all of which have indigenous leaders overseeing the work in their nations
An estimated 200,000 women and men meet together each month through local Aglow fellowships–the heart of the organization
More than 21,000 Aglow leaders worldwide minister in their communities
An estimated 17 million individuals each year are ministered to through Aglow groups
Aglow consists of small group studies, care (support) groups, retreats, and annual conferences
Aglow workers, through prayer and evangelism, offer practical gifts of clothing, food, housecleaning, and babysitting, as well as mentoring young people
Aglow groups impact their communities by reaching out to those in prison, in senior homes, inner city neighborhoods, and mental institutions; to single moms, working men and women, all beginning with the next door neighbor
Aglow has experienced rapid growth in the past several years, including the nations of Central Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa
In Europe, Aglow is established in every major nation (40 nations)
An active Aglow program in Europe called “Adopt-A-Nation” gives many of the Western European nations the opportunity to “adopt” other nations for support and/or prayer
We believe that God has been maturing the women and men of Aglow to be able to receive His three specific mandates by faith, and live them out for His Kingdom’s sake.
Our mandates are:
1. To promote gender reconciliation between male and female in the Body of Christ as God designed.
2. To answer God’s call to minister to the Muslim people, while bringing awareness of the basic theological differences between Islam and Christianity.
3. To stand in loving support for Israel and the Jewish people, while helping to bring awareness to the Body of Christ concerning God’s plans and purposes for those people He calls the apple of His eye.
Aglow began in 1967 with four women who expressed a desire to meet together as Christians without denominational boundaries. The first general meeting was held in Seattle, Washington, USA, close to where Aglow’s Worldwide Headquarters exists today.
The meeting drew more than 100 women to the Meany Hotel close to the University of Washington campus. It didn’t take long for women who attended that first meeting to invite their neighbors and friends to gatherings in other communities surrounding Seattle. As the word spread, new groups began springing up around Washington state, and within months, groups formed in other U.S. states.
By 1972, more than 60 local groups held monthly meetings around the U.S. By 1973, Aglow was moving onto the global stage as fellowships began in Canada, and New Zealand. The Netherlands followed in 1974, marking Aglow as an international “network of caring women,” in just six short years.
Today, Aglow spans the globe! And it continues to reach out to women of every creed, color, and culture, and, through women, to families worldwide. Over 4,600 Aglow groups meet worldwide, about 68% of them are outside the U.S. (over 2,850 groups).
More than 21,000 Aglow leaders worldwide minister in their communities and nations, to an estimated 17 million people each year. Today, 100% of the 172 nations have indigenous women overseeing the work in their nations.
