I’m Joan Hutter, and I started Women Abide in 2012 to see believers abide in Jesus Christ and carry His glory as lovers after His heart, burning ones walking through cities and nations bringing healing to the broken in an outpouring of God’s love through the simple gospel.I am living to see a multitude of women, one by one, be overshadowed by the glory of the Lord and arise with healing, love, passion and power, to carry the oil of intimacy to a broken world. We raise up leaders and lovers and launch hearts into their destinies through worship, prayer, fasting, missions, conferences, seminars, and intercessory and soaking worship ministry.  We are honored to walk the streets of our cities, and of nations, to bring Jesus to the hopeless.We have traveled to the nations with the love of God, humbled to serve the poor. Whether nations or neighbors, there’s a cry for Jesus, for meaning, and those who are hungry and thirsty come.We are women on the frontlines of love, bringing love to the frontlines.Presence Academy Jesus recently led me to launch an online leadership and discipleship school, the Abide Presence Academy. Speakers and leaders from ministries across the nation and world zoom in to bring a biblical message from the heart of God. We will continue this mentorship in the coming seasons. The Lord is calling, and many are ready to arise and step out in faith.I am passionate for every believer to deeply encounter the Presence of God and to abide in Jesus Christ; that they would carry His glory and love to the lost and broken, and live passionately and fervently, walking in their heart destiny and calling from the Lord. It is all for His glory.I am, with many others, living to see a great awakening. I love to speak to groups and I’ll linger in prayer at the altar over individuals.Jesus is King. He is worthy. May He receive the reward of His suffering.Thank you with all my heart for your support. May God bless you abundantly and multiply back to you more than all you can ask or imagine.
