Carolyn Pankalla Ministries is an international non-profit
organization dedicated to:
This year Carolyn is focused on providing much needed aid to
children in Zambia, Africa, delivering food and constructing a rescue crisis
center. To raise the necessary
funding for this project, she has launched her new eBoutique. “We call this Shopping with a Purpose,”
she says. “All of the proceeds
will support the ministry and the Zambia project.”
At the age of 19, Carolyn's father
Jack was homeless. A kind gentleman ministered him. He turned his life
around and met his wife Martha. Together they had seven children.
Carolyn was the baby of the family. They started a music ministry, Goad
Ministries, and traveled the world singing and encouraging others to embrace
When Carolyn was six years old,
her family was on their way home from a performance when they were in a car
accident. Their mom was thrown from the car and killed. Carolyn
sustained brain injuries and was not expected to live. Her stood vigil by
her bedside and prayed to God to heal her. "I'm living proof that He
can perform miracles," says Carolyn.
Seven years later, her father was
killed in an explosion at his home. Rather than retreat in sorrow, these
tragedies strengthened the Goad family and they formed Goad International, and
organization dedicated to helping others worldwide.
Recently, Carolyn also lost her
brother, Rick Goad, to pancreatic cancer. While the family continues
their music ministry, Carolyn has embarked on her own solo career with the
debut of her new album "Broken into Beautiful".
