Renowned Christian speaker/vocalist to appear locally
GREENSBURG – Carolyn Goad-Pankalla, author, performer, worship leader, public speaker and radio show host will be appearing Sunday at High Point Orchard.
Her performance is part of All For 1’s first evening of worship and praise in an outdoor venue. The evening of music, food and fellowship for all denominations starts at 5 p.m. with Illuminate, Fire-By-Night Band and testimony and music by Goad-Pankalla.
Goad-Pankalla’s ministry, spanning almost 40 years, got its start when she was just an infant.
Her father was a minister with seven children and the family traveled with him to preach. He suffered a brain aneurysm and blacked out at the wheel on a trip home one evening. Their van slid off the road and crashed.
“My mother and I were thrown out of the window. I was seriously injured, but my mother was killed. In the hospital, my remaining family members got down on their knees and prayed for God to come down and touch my body,” Goad-Pankalla said. “I just want people to know how real God is. I thought then that we would just quit and give up, but more than ever we knew we had a message, and that was the hope of Christ.”
Co-hosting a Christian women’s television talk show in Orlando, Florida, called “Welcome Home,” Pankalla and her women’s ministry is now broadcast in 28 million homes via Direct-TV.
Her album “Broken into Beautiful” (Central South Recording) and her songs “Living for Something,” Love is a Cross” and “Jesus is the Answer” were all played on Christian pop radio stations soon after their release and are all available on YouTube.
“I just want people to know that no matter what they are going through, God is bigger. The enemy wants us to focus on what’s in front of us, instead of who’s in charge. We get caught up in the moment, and forget about God – and that’s my ministry,” Goad-Pankalla told the Daily News.
Carolyn Pankalla Ministry, Inc. is a non-profit 501c (3) which focuses on ministering to women and children through music, materials, and messages, geared to equip and inspire people no matter what challenges they are facing.
The evening of praise and worship is multi-denominational and free to the public.
Food will be available for purchase with proceeds going to benefit Speranza House, Greensburg’s women’s shelter.
Attendees are urged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating and umbrellas in the event of rain.
