The Rev. Debra Gordon

Deacon of Parish Life

Deacon Debra Gordon Parish Life

My spiritual formation began in early childhood and was developed by Christian relationships and experiences interwoven within home, church, and community life near Tampa, Fla. After receiving a degree in Communications & Education for agricultural sciences from the University of Florida, I worked in a variety of marketing, public relations, and educational positions.

In 2011, I joined the parish staff as Director of Children's & Family Ministries and served in that role through 2018 when God issued a new ministry call for me to direct Church & Community Relations for the parish.

After discerning a call to ordained ministry in 2018, I underwent training and diaconal formation for holy orders and was ordained at Christ Church Vero Beach in 2022 to serve as a Deacon within the Gulf Atlantic Diocese. Currently, I am enrolled in the Master's Degree program at Trinity School for Ministry with an emphasis in Catechesis and Christian Formation.

Romans 12:12 says to “be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” and such is a keystone of my personal journey and ministry as I seek to embrace the charge of Proverbs 3:5-6, trusting the Lord in all things rather than my own understanding of them. God is always faithful, standing by His Word and fulfilling his promises.

Ever ready for a travel adventure, I also enjoy down time by the pool, at a piano, or curled up with a good book. My college sweetheart, Matt, and I have two adult children: our son, Andrew, is working on a college degree in Biology, and our daughter, Gracie, is on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.
