Amy Pannell is the daughter of international itinerate evangelists Michael and Jan Gott. As a child she traveled the world with her parents witnessing evangelistic crusades across the US and spanning the globe from Scandinavia to East Africa.
After completing her secondary education Amy attended the largest Christian University in the world, Liberty University. At Liberty Amy earned a degree in International Relations with a minor in Missions and graduated with enough credits to have a second major in Biblical Studies. Upon graduating from Liberty University she was accepted to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where she was blessed to sit under the teaching of such spiritual giants as Dr. Roy Fish as she pursued a graduate degree in Womenís Ministry.
While enrolled in Southwestern, Amy married the love of her life, Jim Pannell and embarked on a fifteen year journey in ministry as she supported him in his call to pastor. Jim served faithfully in local churches for over 20 years and was extremely instrumental in shaping Amyís understanding and philosophy of ministry. Jim and Amy live in Fort Worth, Texas with their two children, Grant and LG (Lauren Grace).
Amy has been involved in or lead over 100 international mission teams. She enjoys speaking at womenís events, and has also served as a womenís Bible study leader, a womenís prayer group leader, and Sunday school teacher.
Under her leadership, Worldwide Womenís Witness is focused on accepting the challenge of the Great Commission. Her passion for seeing people of all ages find purpose and peace through a relationship with Jesus is the driving force behind all she does.
