Shari Rigby Shares How God Told Her to Disciple Women in Hollywood
By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
OVERCOMER actress Shari Rigby didn’t imagine she’d disciple women in Hollywood until God told her otherwise.
Rigby recalled her early days in Hollywood with The Christian Post, “It’s all about movies, I’m going to be a movie star, I’m going to have massive success.”
But God changed her tune.
“’No, you’re here for my women. Like get it in your head, I’m a God of relationship,’” Rigby remembered feeling God say. “’Go back to your Bible and start looking at when I give my disciples their instructions. I didn’t tell them to go out and get famous and get rich and do those things. I told them to go out and serve my people and tell them that the kingdom is at hand.’”
Rigby took God at His word to model discipleship in Hollywood.
“That was a point in time where not only was I hoping to pour into women, but they were also pouring into me,” said Rigby. “So we started to really go through the study of identity and whose we are and who God is and who He says He is and the promises of Him and identifying with how we are built.”
Shari is the founder of “The Women In My World,” a women’s group focusing on identity, purpose, ministry, serving others and living life in Hollywood. Shari speaks on these topics and has spoken to over 70,000 people and counting. Shari’s passion is serving others by creating and sharing powerful stories of individuals overcoming the odds.
Website onlookers can even sign up for The Women in My World online.
Rigby was also instrumental for organizing a women’s panel at the Christian convention NRB in 2019. Movieguide®’s Evy Baehr Caroll moderated the event.
Rigby said, “Complete gratitude 🙌🏻 hitting the red carpet at the Movieguide Awards 2020! Celebrating Ted Baehr, the Baehr family, the incredible people that bring to life stories of faith and family, my OVERCOMER family, my THE LEAST OF THESE family, and my wonderful husband!!”
