Debbie became a Christian just before she started Primary School. When she was 13, her family moved to Fermanagh, where her dad was the Pastor of Mullaghmeen Baptist Church. It was here she studied the Bible more in depth and was encouraged in her faith by others in the church.
Since Debbie and her family came to Newtownards Baptist in 2004, she has been mainly involved in the JYF and Holiday Bible Club. She enjoys working alongside the young people, realising the importance of encouragement from older Christians in her own life.
Sport has always been a big part of her life and she has been a PE teacher since 2005. Debbie took up the position of part-time church administrator and co-ordinator of young people and young families in 2017.
