Biography

Priscilla Shirer is a wife and a mom first.  But put a Bible in her hand and a message in her heart and you'll see why thousands flock to her conferences and dive into her Bible study series' each year.

A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, Priscilla holds a Master's degree in Biblical Studies and loves nothing more than to serve her sisters in Christ through the teaching of God's Word.  She considers it a privilege to serve believers from every denomination and culture by helping them to know the truths of Scripture intellectually and by encouraging them to experience these truths practically by the power of the Holy Spirit.

In addition to Priscilla's participation in many church and para-church conferences across the  globe each year, Going Beyond Ministries hosts numerous events of its own which draw a wide variety of women from different age groups and backgrounds.  The ministry also equips believers with Bible study resources by partnering with Lifeway Christian resources.  Priscilla has authored 10 video driven studies on a myriad of Biblical characters and topics including Jonah, Gideon, the Exodus and discerning God's voice.  The latest study - Breathe: Making Room For Sabbath - will be released in Fall 2014.

Priscilla has published numerous books including A Jewel in His Crown, Discerning the Voice of God, the New York Times Bestseller, The Resolution for Women and God is Able.

Priscilla has been married to Jerry for 15 years.  Between studying and writing, she spends most of her time cleaning up after (and trying to satisfy the appetites of) their three growing boys - Jackson (11), Jerry Jr. (10) and Jude (5).
