Pamela Ingram was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the T. B. Watkins public housing development for most of those years. She graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 1976 and shortly afterwards married Ellis Ingram, a professor at the University of Missouri School of Medicine.
Shortly after marriage, the reality of what God offers through a relationship with Jesus Christ penetrated Pam’s heart and she learned that all the mercy, forgiveness and acceptance she had sought throughout her life was now hers as she invited Christ to take over her life. Her husband followed suit and they have been members of Christian Fellowship Church in Columbia, Missouri, for more than 35 years. The Ingrams have four grown children and five grandchildren.
Since beginning their journey with the Lord, Pam and Ellis have been involved in various evangelistic outreaches, including “FreePrayer,” a door-to-door prayer outreach, which she co-founded with Jane Williams in 1995. And, of course, she is also the founder and director of Granny’s House which is located in the Douglass Park public housing development in Columbia, Missouri.
