On Jan. 26th, the founders of the A21 Campaign launched a new magazine. In an age where women’s positions as leaders both within and outside the church are generally accepted, albeit to differing degrees, Propel Women magazine exists to “help women internalize a leadership identity and fulfill their purpose, passion and potential.”
Co-founder Christine Cane will be familiar to many students as a keynote speaker from Missions Conference 2013. She and her husband, Nick, pastor and director of Empower and Equip Ministries, founded Propel together.
Cane explains on their website that Propel Women was birthed of a perceived need. Though there is plenty of self-help and women’s literature out there, Propel Women is for the woman in leadership, particularly in the marketplace. It’s an unapologetic, “let’s get on with it” sort of magazine that has left behind the question of women’s roles and embraced where women are.
On their website, the magazine’s editors identify the propel woman: “unapologetic,” “undaunted,” “unmovable,” “uncommon” and “unpretentious.”
“Propel Women” is founded on Christian principles that seek to help women who are already in leadership to live their lives in Christ and to lead in ways that God has equipped and called them.
The publication, which is currently only online for a free subscription, features articles on faith, career, life and culture. There is no word yet on whether they plan to release print publications in the future.
