Just off her performance in this Spring’s Christian blockbuster movie “I Can Only Imagine”, Priscilla Shirer is still planting seeds as the weather warms up. Shirer, a New York Times best-selling author and popular Christian speaker, will simulcast her live Tampa event on Saturday, April 28. The simulcast will be broadcast at several Kansas City area churches. It begins at 8:00 A.M. Central Time and ending at 3:35 P.M. with multiple breaks.
The simulcast will plant seeds of faith, encouragement and empowerment for women around the world who will be watching the event live. It brings women together from all walks of life in their churches for a day of biblical teaching, prayer, and worship.
She will be joined by her brother, Christian recording artist Anthony Evans who will lead worship.
A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, Priscilla holds a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies. She says she considers it a privilege to serve believers from every denomination and culture by helping them to know the truths of Scripture intellectually and encouraging them to experience these truths practically by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Shirer, one of today’s top Bible teachers, recently talked about the importance of stirring up the gifts of God in each other just as her character did for MercyMe frontman Bart Millard in the new film, “I Can Only Imagine.”
Shirer plays a teacher that Millard came in contact with during his High School years who was instrumental in making him the impactful musician he is today. Her character saw the gift he had to sing and called it out of him.
“Thank God for people who come alongside of young people and say, ‘No there’s more in there, Let’s go ahead and mind those treasures that are in there,'” Shirer said.
“There is a Joshua spirit in all of us that you might not see, you just need a Moses to call it out of you,” Shrier advised. “Ask God for a Moses … for a mentor in your life who will see it in you. Because their confidence oftentimes becomes the thing that carries you when your thrust in a position where they put you, where they know you can fly if you just trust in the Holy Spirit’s work in your life and the giftings that God has given you.”
Like many people, she says she also battles fear and insecurity when it comes to all that she does, whether it’s acting in films like “I Can Only Imagine” or writing her Christian books.
“If there’s fear or insecurity just know that most everybody that you admire from afar, they are not fearless they just pushed past a fear – they did it anyway. That’s my story,” she admitted.
Shirer confessed that she battles those feelings whether in parenting her three boys, preaching, or any of the other platforms God’s has given her.
It’s also a theme that resonates with her audiences.
Dealing with those feelings and finding fulfillment and victory are some of the things that led her to put together her popular conferences and simulcasts.
On April 28, around the world including Kansas City, Dallas, Los Angeles, China, South Africa and dozens of countries in between, women will join together to view the simulcast at the very same time.
That gives many goose bumps–and hope.
“The journey and experiences this Simulcast brought to my life had a huge life changing impact on me. God is good, I’m in awe of Him and His overwhelming love!” stated Brenda Koch, a past simulcast attendee. “It was Incredible, I met so many beautiful people along the way, many who are now amazing friends! So many wonderful blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ! How great He is!”
