Meet Shirley

Shirley Mitchell

Shirley Mitchell loves God. He is everything in her life. Her passion is for people to truly believe that Jesus is the Son of God and for their lives to be transformed through knowing Him through His Word and to bring glory to God. God has given her a heart for the nations to know and worship Him. She is the women's ministry leader at her church and Bible study leader of many groups around her city, including those meeting at her church, workplace, and home.

In addition to writing and teaching God's Word, she also works full-time as a global marketing program manager for a Fortune 500 company and ministers there. God has given her the honor to teach the Word to youth, singles, and women. It thrills her to see someone receive a word from God, hear God speaking to her, fall in love with Him, or make God the center of her life.

She holds master's certificates in women's ministry and project management, as well as a bachelor's and master's degree in mechanical engineering. She is the founder of Christ Compels Ministry and strives to live daily by 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, "For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again." She is the wife of Doug and mother of three daughters - Mikayla, Sophia, and Victoria.
