Put That on Your Resume visual poem

We believe that God has created women and men in the image of God, to serve as partners in the Gospel with Jesus Christ. The Salvation Army Women's Ministries has produced a video that helps capture some of that rich character the women of the Bible bring to the world.

And we want you to see it and share it!

Poet Valerie Geer's words in 'Put That On Your Résumé' are brought to life by various people from The Salvation Army New Zealand, uncovering women of the Bible and the whakapapa of faith (a Māori word for family lineage) that our foremothers have passed on to us. 

Valerie is the executive director of the House of Ezer, a non-profit organization caring for female survivors of US domestic sex trafficking, and we thank her for her wisdom and prophetic gift in uncovering these stories by poetry. We believe God is speaking today and restoring all that has been lost, for his glory.

Put That On Your Résumé' was first featured here on Christians for Biblical Equality (CBE International). CBE 'advances the gospel by equipping Christians to use their God-given talents in leadership and service regardless of gender, ethnicity, or class.' We thank CBE for their generous work for the kingdom.
