Rev. Alice. V. J. Winston - Founder And the Lord carried me upon a high mountain and said to me call the women, preachers, the singing evangelist, the cottage workers and the slum workers….some came crying, some shouting, and some laughing. And then the Lord said to me, tell them to go forward, and lo I am with you always! So in obedience to the Great Creator of heaven and earth I go forward leading them and if I perish, I perish”… Alice V. J. Winston.

In 1911, the late Rev. Winston organized a group of women who were called to ministry but lacked proper training and an opportunity to exercise their calling. The goal of the Woman’s National Evangelistic and Missionary Conference, which held its first meeting in Philadelphia, was and still is to be  source for growth, inspiration and motivation to women in ministry.
