FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF EQUINE MINISTRY
Pam Rozell is co-founder of Potter’s Field Ministries, which has been sharing the Gospel for over two decades throughout the United States and internationally. In 2005, Potter’s Field created a branch of the ministry called Potter’s Field Kids that is responsible for the evangelism, education, feeding, and care of thousands of children in Kenya, Uganda, DRC Congo, Cambodia, Guatemala, Costa Rica and most recently in Browning, MT, on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. In 2011, they launched their IGNITE Mission Training program that has trained and deployed over 150 interns, ages 18-29, to help with the children’s programs at their international PFK locations.
Pam is an avid animal lover. She has been nicknamed “Snow White,” by her friends because of her uncanny ability to connect with animals on a supernatural level. Her obsession with horses began when she was 10 years old. She readily admits that her weekly horseback riding lessons were the highlight of her childhood. She found that spending time and talking to the horses was easier than talking to people and it helped her to deal with her tumultuous adolescence. She remembers spending many a night in her pony’s stall with friends on weekends and swimming with her pony in the pond.
Pam’s experience with horses during her childhood at Butler's Pony Farm gave her a wide exposure to all types of breeds from little ones all the way to the 17-hand Thoroughbreds. She recalls being challenged to her core, yet overcoming her fears and learning to non-verbally communicate to God's creatures. Pam’s love of horses has grown through the years and it has always been a deep desire of her heart to open a facility at some point in her life to share her love of horses with others. She wants to provide a place for those children, who like herself, need to experience the life changing moments and growth afforded by equines.
Pam and her husband, Michael, reside in Whitefish, Montana, where she enjoys working with and training her herd of 11 horses, each of whom she has handpicked over the years. They all have their own story and she has worked hard helping them overcome the fears and distrust of people in life they developed before Potter’s Field. Pam holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and a minor in Music from University of South Carolina. She is certified in EAL(Equine Assisted Learning) and EAP (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy)Through Greg Kersten’s OK Corral Series.
“I've always known that God created these special animals for many incredible reasons. The very fact that He is coming back in all His glory on a white horse tells us that these creatures hold a special place in His heart, plan, and purpose.” - Pam Rozell

“When I was 18 and looking for direction from the Lord about my future He gave me Psalm 84:5 'Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.' As I moved through my teens teaching and training, I realized God wanted so much more for me than to be a horse trainer. When I began teaching children with learning disabilities and special needs I realized what He was moving my heart to do. The Lord has given me so much through His Son Jesus and blessed me with a love of horses I cannot help but give that same joy to others. I am excited to be part of this next step in my 'pilgrimage' toward heaven, which thankfully includes riding horseback some of the way.” - Rheanna Miller
