The 'Rise in Strength' conference gathered 60 female leaders from 18 different nations, to call on the Christian community to honour women's leadership in family, church and community contexts.
The joint initiative from The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) Women's commission and the Lausanne Movement, sought to address gender inequality and encourage women in their spiritual gifting, through prayer and worship and urged the Church to celebrate the service of women in the work of God.
Elke Werner, a leader of the Lausanne Movement said: "It is so important to recognise the contribution of so many women in the different nations of the kingdom of God.
"These women are heroes. But we also need to stand up for women and girls who cannot fulfil their God-given potential because of barriers in their church culture."
A survey of 500 female leaders, conducted by the consultation, suggested that sexism and church culture were the biggest obstacles to women pursuing Christian ministry.
Director of the WEA Women's Commission said: "We want to acknowledge the pain when women's voices are silenced, single women are ignored, or when the Church tolerates abuse.
"But we also want to be positive about what we can achieve when we work together using our gifts."
