WHERE WOMEN JOIN TOGETHER TO FIND ANSWERS AND FALL MORE IN LOVE WITH GOD.
Welcome to RiseUP. We're excited to host an event where women have the opportunity to laugh, relax, and spend quality time growing closer to each other and to God. We are looking forward to seeing how our Heavenly Father continues to transform Southeastern Ohio through a strengthening of women rooted in God's amazing Grace.
The people behind RiseUP decided to start this annual event in 2012 when God called them to better themselves, grow closer to Him, and bring other women along for the ride. The event has continued to grow and incredible blessings have resulted. RiseUP is non-denominational, non-judgmental, and open to any woman looking for more.
