Priscilla Shirer, a speaker and author, has spent more than a decade addressing major corporations, organizations, and Christian audiences across the United States and around the world. Most recently Priscilla has focused on teaching the Bible to women through an expository teaching style.

The daughter of Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas, Priscilla grew up well acquainted with the Bible. (1) As a freshman at the University of Houston, she interned with a Christian radio station. Soon listeners were calling the station, inviting Priscilla to speak at their Bible study groups and other events. (3) After graduation, Priscilla began her Master’s degree work at Dallas Theological Seminary. Soon she was invited to lead a weekly Bible study at the Zig Ziglar Corporation and then to join its speaker team. (1) Priscilla has worked as an independent contractor for CBS and hosted a local television show, but recently she has focused solely on Christian ministry opportunities. She calls Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Evangelist, Dr. Billy Graham, her mentor in ministry. Shirer's younger brother is Christian singer-songwriter Anthony Evans, Jr..

Priscilla is married to Jerry Shirer, former Hilton Hotels executive. Together the Shirers established Going Beyond Ministries, a speakers' bureau of Bible teachers, including Priscilla. Now the parents of three young boys, the Shirers share ministry and family responsibilities. While Priscilla continues to minister full-time, Jerry manages her schedule and other business aspects of Going Beyond Ministries.[1])

Priscilla speaks around the United States at churches and other events, including the LifeWay Christian Resources-sponsored Going Beyond conference and Deeper Still:[2] The Event, where she shares the stage with Beth Moore[3] and Kay Arthur.[4] She is the author of several books, including He Speaks to Me: Preparing to Hear from God.
