Women of Faith[1] is a Christian-based live events organization. It stages non-denominational events across North America. According to the company, its events have been attended by more than four million people in total.

New Life Treatment Centers began staging the events in 1996. Thomas Nelson Publishers purchased a 60 per cent stake in New Life Treatment Centers in 2000,[2] and subsequently transferred operation of the events to its Live Event Management subsidiary. In 2013 Women of Faith was purchased by the William Morris Agency.

Originally focusing on weekend events, it has also offered Revolve events aimed at teenage girls since 2005[3] and one-day evening events since 2012.[4]

The theme for the events is changed yearly. The content includes speakers, comedians, music and drama alongside worship and prayer. The organisation partners with World Vision and Liberty University.
