LifeWay Christian Resources is slated to simulcast Bible teacher and best-selling author Priscilla Shirer live from New Orleans, La., on April 5.

Church at the Crossing, formerly First Baptist Church of Aledo, will serve as a host location for the Parker County area.

“Priscilla Shirer Live,” sponsored by Nashville-based publishing company LifeWay Christian Resources, will feature Shirer’s dynamic storytelling and passionate Bible teaching.

“She made the Bible come alive,” event attendee Glynnis Childress said. “To have a speaker not lecture but just have a conversation with you was enjoyable.”

The event, which also features a unique prayer time, both challenges and encourages women to grow deeply in their faith.

“I have been distant to God lately and haven’t been able to discern what it is that I should do in certain situations,” event attendee Cher Crawford said. “Priscilla’s message was thought-provoking and motivated me to… deepen my walk with [the Lord].”

Shirer has authored a number of published Bible studies, books, and devotionals specifically for women including LifeWay-published Bible studies such as “Gideon: Your Weakness. God’s Strength;” “Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted;” and “Discerning the Voice of God.”

Shirer’s organization, Going Beyond Ministries, is based out of Dallas.

Recording artist and Shirer’s younger brother, Anthony Evans, is slated to lead worship for the event. Evans was recently featured on NBC’s reality show “The Voice.”  

The Priscilla Shirer Live Simulcast kicks off on Saturday, April 5, at 9 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 covering one full day of music and worship, sessions led by Priscilla Shirer, and opportunities for fellowship with other women from the Parker County community. Women may purchase tickets by calling 817-441-8885 or going online at
