Christine Caine, founder of The A21 Campaign, is partnering with Liberty University for her new initiative, Propel, designed to equip and encourage women for leadership.

Caine will be visiting Liberty University Jan. 26-30, 2015, to launch the initiative. Throughout the launch week, prominent Christian speakers will host events and appear at Convocation. Caine will speak at Convocation on Monday, Jan. 26.

“We here at Liberty University count it an honor to host the inaugural launch event for the Propel movement,” said David Nasser, Liberty’s senior vice president for Spiritual Development. “Propel’s vision is to see both men and women make disciples at home and in the workplace. This aligns well with our university’s mission of raising up a new generation of Champions for Christ. This is the heart of Propel — to literally propel the people of God to carry out the mission of God.”

Caine is a prolific Christian speaker and author. Caine and her husband, Nick, founded The A21 Campaign in 2008 to combat slavery and human trafficking around the world. A21 was given the global 2012 Hero of Human Trafficking Award. She has written five books, including “Undaunted” and her most recent release, “UNSTOPPABLE: Running the Race You Were Born to Win.”

“Our desire is to empower women to lead more effectively and to see themselves as an intricate part of God’s plan in all spheres of life,” Caine said. “For generations, women have navigated the nuances of being a woman in leadership without a roadmap. Gaps in leadership training have forced women to compartmentalize their lives, separating work, church, home and personal life.”

Her hope for Propel is to “create an interconnected life in Christ, who affirms and acknowledges every woman’s gifts, passions, and leadership potential for the glory of the kingdom.”
