Priscilla's Dynamic Teaching

Copyright by Jackie D. Kimball

I just discovered a dynamic Christian Women's Leader. You see,I got lucky a few weeks ago. I couldn't sleep.Creaky bones, a hissing sleep apnea mask ,and a full moon don't mix. I tossed and turned and adjusted and readjusted the straps on my mask. I have nights like this sometimes, and I have learned that I may as well get up . If I get up and read or watch television, I eventually get drowsy and then I can sleep.

But why do I consider not being able to sleep a good thing? Because I watched television and found a jewel.

Snuggling in on the couch, I turned on the television to a Christian network . I was glad to see that Hillsong church was on. My jaw nearly dropped when I saw excerpts from a woman's conference. One of the speakers that was featured was one I had never heard before. What a dynamo! Her name was Priscilla Shirer. One minute she would be in preacher mode, a bit later she would have you cracking up with laughter.I had to hear more !

I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVEN'T HEARD OF THIS WELL KNOWN SPEAKER!

I can't believe I have never heard of Priscilla Shirer. For at least ten years she has been well known as a speaker at Christian women's conferences in the USA and abroad. She often joins Beth Moore and Kay Arthur for Women of Destiny Conferences.Still....I never heard of her. Oh, what I have been missing!

I thought that since I had not heard of her,maybe you haven't either. Or is it just me that doesn't know about this passionately dedicated bible teacher? Since I heard Priscilla teach that night, I've found her on youtube and have watched all the videos . I like her even more!

Her method of delivery is relaxed and personal. This lady knows her bible! She also has a website with her blog, calendar of her speaking events , and more. The blog is very entertaining, and the pictures of her three sons are adoarble.

Priscilla Shirer is the daughter of well know minister Dr. Tony Evans. Dr. Evans and his wife of forty years pastor Oakcliff Bible Fellowship in Texas. Priscilla's father founded this church over thirty years ago, and Priscilla still attends her father's church. The family is very close. Her younger brother Anthony sometimes travels with her and leads the praise and worship before she speaks.

Priscilla was pursuing a degree in radio and television when she interned at a Houston Christian radio station.Invitations to local church events were frequent, and she began speaking and teaching at the events. many years of solid biblical teaching and her enthusiastic personality renderd her a much sought teacher and speaker.

It was during this time that she met Zig Zeigler. Zig knew a motivator when he saw one. He became her mentor and friend and invited her to join his team. Shortly thereafter she became one of Zig's much sought motivational speakers.

Still, Priscilla longed to teach, and her calling was to teach women to let God speak so that they could live their lives with purpose. Priscilla left Zig's team,and later graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a degree in Biblical Studies.

As she became more and more known she joined with teams such as Beth moore and Hillsong for Christian women's conferences. She has also written several books.

She and her husband Jerry have three sons and live in Dallas,Texas. They founded Going Beyond Ministries and husband Jerry manages the schedules and business.

Enjoy the videos. Visit her website. Buy one of her books. I hope you find her as dynamic and well founded biblicaly as I have. Why didn't someone tell me? I don't know, but I 'm making sure YOU don't miss out ! According to her website,Priscilla is coming to Hattiesburg MS on September 10th and 11th. Hopefully I will be there!

Joshua was a different paradigm of leader... I like that! I like that she uses that word, paradigm. That word really carries weight. But not as much as "heated fellowship" with my husband, lol. Good one bayoulady. Did not know her before you brought her to my attention. Question, how do you define annointed leader? I have never heard of that expression.

bayoulady 6 years ago from Northern Louisiana,USA Author

STORYTELLER-Glad you watched the video.OOOPS! I guess that is a local expression.Maybe southern. I dunno.I remember that word was also used when I lived in Murfreesboro TN back in the 70s, so maybe it is outdated. It basically means (to us) that a leader seems to be chosen....has a calling to serve. Maybe I should change that word

Verb 1. anoint - choose by or as if by divine intervention; "She was anointed the head of the Christian fundamentalist group"

choose, pick out, select, take - pick out, select, or choose from a number of alternatives; "Take any one of these cards"; "Choose a good husband for your daughter"; "She selected a pair of shoes from among the dozen the salesgirl had shown her"

2. anoint - administer an oil or ointment to ; often in a religious ceremony of blessing

I changed the title. I hope that sounds better. I think she is annointed...called..chosen...used...by God.

I'm glad I took the time to read your hub; thanks for sharing such a delightful speaker that speaks divine words as a real lay person seeking God just like others are. I also like her style. :)

Hello sister I cant wait to listen to Priscilla. Thank you so much for sharing your discovery of an awesome woman in the Lord. I am going to listen to video. I love you sis and am grateful for your presence at the hubs You keep shining the love in your heart on these pages. I was in Gulf Port for a couple weeks after Katrina putting roofs on homes with our church. I love LA people. The Love of our Lord GOD is mighty I would not trade that experience for a trip to the Bahamas.

God so Blessed me. He is amazing love. Love n hugs lady.

skye2day~~~~~~~Hello! oh, I'm so glad that you found this hub! I did not get to go hear her in Sept. , But maybe someday! She is just a sweetheart, and i wish I could afford some DVDs of her annointed teachings, so relevant for women today!

I love LA people,too! but if you were in South LA , you were in a different culture, with different accents and cuisine than north louisiana. Really , we are more like the folk in MS and Arkansas than south Louisiana in accent and cuisine. You really must try our fried catfish if you ever visit north Louisiana! Try my recipes on my fried catfish hub!

If you love Priscilla Shirer's studies, you will also love the new book and devotional studies written by her father and sister, Dr. Tony Evans and Chrystal Evans Hurst. They are called "Kingdom Woman: Embracing Your Purpose, Power and Possibilities." Written to challenge women to look higher than where you are to whose you are. The book encourages women to set their eyes on Christ and to pursue what God has created them to be. Free devotional downloads, too! kingdomwomanbook.com.
