Debby and Russ.jpg

Our Pastor

     Pastor Debby Stinton and her husband Russel (Russ) joined us on February 1, 2021.

   Debby graduated college from Arizona State University and went to seminary at Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California. When she first felt the call to the ministry, her dream was to pastor in a small-town church. She imagined herself opening the doors to the community with open arms of welcome. That dream has stayed with her all these years. The important piece of this search and call is Debby’s relationship to the congregation and the community.

   Debby was especially attracted to West Liberty UCC because she sensed an openness to a progressive voice. She feels called to a solo pastor position because she wants to be a part of all the ministries of the church. Debby desires to be at an intergenerational church where she can play with the kids from all age groups from 0 – 100.
