Jennie Mitchell: Women Worth Knowing

By May 6, 2020April 22nd, 2022Christian Living, Podcasts1 min read

Jennie Mitchell (1885-1978): Today we will be looking at one of Pastor Chuck Smith’s favorite speakers, leaders, and visionaries. She was a frequent speaker at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa during the “Jesus People Movement.” Jenny was born on the plains of Nebraska. Her father was a horse thief. After moving to Los Angeles at the turn of the century, she was called by the Lord into full-time service. During her 60 years of ministry, she traveled the world sharing the gospel, started the GO YE FELLOWSHIP with her husband Andrew, and had a weekly radio broadcast. Her story is both colorful and extraordinary!


Join us each week for a lively conversation between author Cheryl Brodersen and history teacher Jasmine Alnutt as they explore the lives of well-known—and not so well-known—Christian women in history. Trust us—these are definitely women worth knowing! Visit

Cheryl currently oversees the Joyful Life women’s Bible study at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. She also hosts a weekly podcast called “Women Worth Knowing,” highlighting women from all walks of life, past and present, and the lives they led for the Lord. Cheryl is also a frequent speaker at women’s retreats and conferences around the world.

Jasmine Alnutt is from Washington State and graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA.
