“Taking thoughts captive means – actively replacing the enemy’s thinking with God’s thinking.”
– Priscilla Shirer (The Armor of God)
Priscilla Shirer is no stranger to the Word of God. She grew up grounded in the church as a PK (preacher’s kid). Her father is Senior Pastor, Dr. Tony Evans of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship located in Dallas, Texas.

She attended the University of Houston and Dallas Theological Seminary, where she earned a master’s degree in Biblical Studies. As a freshman, she interned with a Christian radio program while attending the university. It was at this time that she began her speaking ministry along with teaching Bible studies.
This woman of purity is a beauty of tall stature who has great fashion sense. But most importantly, she loves teaching the Word of God. Shirer is a gifted motivational speaker who speaks to thousands of women all around the world brining the Word of God!

Additionally, Shirer is an actress who starred in the Kendrick Brothers’ Christian film “War Room” (2015) about prayer. In Shirer’s book “Fervent” (2015), she states that her grandmother went to war on her knees for her and since then has been her example.
Hosting a web show called, “The Chat with Priscilla,” she invites spiritually cool guests to sit and candidly share their stories with a live audience. Additionally, Shirer hosts conferences and hosts AWAKEN, an outreach event that encourages women. She is also the founder of Going Beyond Ministries.
In addition to that, Shirer is a godly wife who is married to her husband Jerry and has three beautiful boys.
