Salvation Testimony of Deb:
I grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ as my Savior at a young age. College was a significant time in my spiritual journey. Not only did it give me new and challenging opportunities to be involved in ministry, but it was also a time of me needing to make my faith my own. I am extremely grateful that God has lovingly, patiently and unrelentingly taught me through all periods in my life- the highs and the lows- and that He continues to do so.
I attended a Christian university where I took various Bible and ministry classes. Later, I had some training at FBC- discipleship, D1 and D2.
Ministry Before the Mission Field:
After graduating from college I worked in the Dominican Republic for three years with a youth ministry and an elementary school. I have had the opportunity to go on a handful of short- term missions trips. As well, I was involved in the ESL ministry at FBC.
Current Ministry in the Czech Republic:
As a church planting team, our hope is to see more Czech-led churches filled with passionate believers who desire to see others know the Lord personally as well. Thus far our focus has been largely on evangelism, discipleship and small Bible studies.
