We look forward to welcoming Rev. Debbie Thomas to our Redeemer staff to serve as our new co-pastor, effective July 1, 2020.
Pastor Debbie is a graduate of Taylor University in Indiana with a B.A. in Psychology. She received her Masters of Divinity Degree from Ashland Theological Seminary in Ohio. She comes to us with 20 years of pastoral experience, serving churches in Plymouth (Assoc. Pastor), Royal Oak: St. Johns, Iron Mountain, Bay City, and Alma UMC. Debbie is a gifted preacher and leader and we are excited about the gifts she brings to Redeemer.
Debbie is married to Paul, who serves as the event planner for Celebrate Your Marriage, a weekend event for couples at Grand Hotel twice a year. They have one son, Aaron, who is fourteen years old and will be a freshman at Dewitt High School in the fall. He plays the trumpet in the band and swimming is his sport of choice. In her spare time, Debbie loves to run, read, watch sports, and spend time with her family.
Pastor Debbie and Pastor Rod expect to share ministry at both the Dewitt and St. Johns campuses of Redeemer Church.
