Oakwood To Host Global Simulcast With Author Priscilla Shirer

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Oakwood Baptist Church has teamed with LifeWay Christian Resources to simulcast Bible teacher and best-selling author Priscilla Shirer live from New Orleans, La., on April 5, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 pm. at Oakwood’s Chickamauga Campus located at 115 Oakwood Street, Chickamauga, Ga.

 

“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.


Ms. Shirer has authored a number of published Bible studies, books, and devotionals specifically for women including 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 Anthony Evans, who also happens to be Priscilla’s younger brother, is slated to lead worship for the event. Mr. Evans was featured on NBC’s reality show The Voice.

 

The Priscilla Shirer Live Simulcast kicks off on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 10:00 am and ends
at 5:30 pm Tickets are $20 covering one full day of music and worship; sessions led by
Priscilla Shirer; opportunities for fellowship with other women and lunch. Tickets can be
purchased online at www.oakwoodbc.org/simulcast. 

 

Oakwood Baptist Church is one church that worships at 115 Oakwood Street in Chickamauga and at 3969 Cloud Springs Road in Ringgold, Ga.
