Impact Women Who
Are Impacting The World
Our mission is to impact English speaking, Kingdom-minded women serving around the world from various nations and vocations, through restful, restorative, and nurturing retreats; to provide ongoing care, connection, and resources; and to be a host of dynamic women involved in fair trade.
First and foremost, we value the people of Azmera; those who serve cross-culturally and attend our retreats, those who volunteer to serve those cross-cultural workers, those who support Azmera through prayer and financial gifts, and the staff who work so diligently to make things happen. As a result, we have defined some key areas that have significant value to the life and health of the ministry of Azmera:
Honoring God – We seek to honor God through our words and deeds and find our strength in Him.
Prayer – We highly value prayer and desire to remain in a posture that is sensitive to the Spirit's leading.
Teamwork – We are committed to effective partnerships between staff, our board, volunteers, donors, churches, agencies, etc. We value collaboration, unity, humility and respect as we together work to accomplish the mission.
Authenticity – We strive for transparency and honesty in all Azmera relationships.
Utilizing Gifting – We believe that God has gifted His children in unique ways. The body of Christ and the ministry of Azmera will be most effective as we encourage each person to excel in their gifting.
Servant Leadership – We desire to lead through our service of others.
