DEBBIE GARCIAChildren Director
Debbie grew up in a Christian household and thought she knew all she needed to know about being a Christian. Yet, she was missing one important and very vital component in her Christian life. She had lived a very religious, self-centered life which led to a very worldly and a very “me first” frame of mind. It wasn’t until September of 2011 that she couldn’t take it anymore and felt like there had to be more to being a Christian than what she had experienced. She was longing for a deep personal relationship with Jesus and in February of 2012 she finally invited Christ into her heart during an altar call one Wednesday evening at church. Debbie has 11 years of Christian preschool experience, 2 years as an Executive Director of Grace Symphony Orchestra and countless hours of sweat and tears in raising 4 children with her husband and best friend, Miguel Garcia.
