Meet our staff
Pastor Debbie Boyce
Pastor Debbie began her ministry at Faith in late October 2020. She is enthusiastic about both Sunday morning services and everyday opportunities to learn and worship. She is passionate about her calling as a preacher, and providing many ways to hear and connect with God’s word. In her words: “I feel very traditionally Lutheran, but want to be innovative.” She’s excited by Faith’s desire to embrace change, even as we strive to identify what that means.
Pastor Debbie and her husband, Bill, have raised five kids and delight in the joy of their six grandchildren. For her, they are the people who daily reflect the love and grace of God.
Pastor Debbie welcomes the opportunity to visit and get to know you. Don’t hesitate to contact her.
