Tirzah’s Emerging Leaders Initiative is a program designed to identify and support young women around the world who are currently leading and have the potential to lead on the regional and global stage. Tirzah will connect emerging leaders with global and local mentors, will help to open doors of opportunity for these young leaders, and will connect them to similarly-minded young leaders across the globe.

Spiritual development and discipleship is crucial because it is putting into another’s hand the key you have found which opens the door to true hope: God.

ASIA

On the third Saturday of every month Tirzah in Myanmar hosts a women’s fellowship meeting. Women ministry and mission leaders set aside all of their other work and meet to pray, share testimonies of how the Lord is working in their lives and encourage one another. This group comes together across denominational and racial differences. In a nation where religious freedom is precious, these meetings are a great encouragement and serve as strong motivation for ministry.
