What is a Ministry Location?
Beauty Arise currently operates in 4 different locations around the globe with several new locations being launched in 2016. Each location has its own staff and as a team they carry their own unique vision for reaching the girls and women in their area.
Every Beauty Arise ministry location has a two-fold ministry:
- We reach girls & women in our area with the truth about their beauty, identity and value according to the word of God.
- We prayerfully choose a "Focus Ministry" and empower the girls/women in our area to participate in outreaching to these people on a regular basis.

FOCUS MINISTRY: Professionals in Entertainment & Fashion ~ A major piece of our vision has been to reach professionals working in the fashion and entertainment industries with the love of Christ. We believe that these industries are the primary voices speaking into the lives of girls and women everywhere about their beauty, identity, and value. Our desire is to see industry professionals become disciples of Jesus Christ and use their influence to minister His love and power to people of all nations.

Switzerland Ministry Location
This ministry is led by Dorothea Pletscher and her team of 6 staff. Their primary way of fulfilling the Beauty Arise vision for their area is through producing and hosting events. Their staff meet together as leaders roughly once a month to talk, pray, and plan upcoming Beauty Arise events. The events happen at least 5 times a year and each one has its own theme that relates to what we will be sharing with the women who attend.
Their most recent event was a Gala Dinner which had 60 attendees ranging in age from late teens to women in their mid-sixties. The guest speaker was a young man who spoke about the ugly duckling who grows up to be a beautiful swan- encouraging women to see themselves as God sees them and embrace the unique beauty He has put within each of them.
In 2016 Beauty Arise Switzerland hopes to see girls who have visited their events, rising up in their God given identity. We hope that they're inspired through us and Beauty Arise. We believe for such a holy atmosphere through the events, that broken hearts will be healed and girls and women will boldly take a stand in their homes, workplaces and communities.
Beauty Arise Schwiiz wurde gegründet um Frauen in der von Gott gegebenen Schönheit, ihre Identität und ihren Wert zu lehren und sie zu ermutigen. Um diese Vision zu erfüllen veranstalten wir verschiedene Events.
Unser Leitungsteam besteht aus 6 Mitarbeiterinnen. Wir treffen uns rund einmal im Monat. Während diesen Sitzungen besprechen, planen und beten wir für die bevorstehenden Beauty Arise Events. Die Events werden jeweils fünfmal pro Jahr durchgeführt. Jeder Anlass trägt sein eigenes Thema, welches wir mit den anwesenden Frauen aufgreifen und teilen. Unser letzter Event war das legendäre Gala Dinner. Wir durften mit 60 Frauen ein Festessen besonderer Art geniessen. Unser Gastsprecher, ein junger Mann, sprach über „das hässliche Entlein“ welches zu „einem schönen Schwan“ heranwuchs.
Für das Jahr 2016 wünschen wir uns, dass Frauen durch unsere Beauty Arise Events in ihrer Identität neu aufblühen. Wir hoffen dass sie inspiriert werden. Wir möchten sehen, wie die besondere Atmosphäre, welche während den Events jeweils herrscht, Heilung in zerbrochene Herzen bringt und dass die Frauen ermutigt aufstehen und ein Zeichen in ihrem Umfeld setzen.
