Debbie's ministry experience started with Youth With a Mission. After getting married in 1986, she has partnered with Alex in three church plants and together they have also trained and developed other church planters. Debbie received Bible training at Bethany School of Missions and also graduated from Yellowstone Valley Bible Institute with a certificate of Church Ministry. Some of Debbie's passions include helping the local church partner with missions groups, teaching and mentoring women, equipping and releasing the next generation, and planning events where friendships can develop and deepen. Alex and Debbie have two wonderful children: Jessica, married to their son-in-law, Eddy Welch, and, Joshua. They also have two grandchildren, Elijah & Liam. Some of her interests and hobbies include traveling, outdoor activities, spending time with family and friends, eating, motorcycle riding with Alex, shopping, get-togethers with women, and doing church as a team. If she were not in ministry, she would be either a travel agent or a massage therapist. If Debbie could have a bowl of ice cream right now it would be pumpkin flavored.
