Debbie Packnick | Director of Student Ministries
Pastor Debbie joined
the Covenant Church of Easton in the summer of 2015 and she and her husband Rob
quickly fell in love with the people and the purpose of our church; Loving God,
Growing Together, Serving Others. Debbie
is actively involved in the life of our church through Bible studies, service
and mission projects and of course, youth ministry.
Debbie’s passion for
helping young people discover the joy of studying God’s Word has led her to
host a Sunday morning Bible study during the school year and a summer Bible study
in her home (complete with home-baked chocolate chip cookies) that gathers between
25 and 35 high school and college-age youth each week.
In her free time,
Pastor Debbie likes to cheer on students at their sports games or high school
plays and you’ll frequently find her at Panera Bread or Duchess catching up
with them over lunch. Whether it’s
serving the homeless, riding a roller coaster or gathering for a group prayer,
Pastor Debbie LOVES helping youth connect their every-day-lives to the things
of God and their true purpose.
Debbie and Rob feel very blessed and spiritually fed by attending
worship at Covenant Church each Sunday, as do their three young adult children
(Kyle, Craig and Ally) when they’re in town. Following in mom’s footsteps, each one of their kids have
found themselves in Christian leadership roles through the Appalachia Service
Project, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and children’s and youth ministries in
the local church.
