Pastor Debbie Riggsby

Growing up in Kansas on a farm, I experienced God’s amazing work in creation. When I started reading the Bible, God nudged me into wanting to be a person of faith too. Ever since I said yes to serving God in a church, God has continued to form me to connect with eleven different church families from small country churches in Kansas and Texas to a large downtown church in Dallas.

Called to follow God

In August 1985, I found myself at a crossroads between teaching piano students and volunteering in the church with youth and music.   I asked God where God wanted to use my creative gifts and talents.  I immediately felt my heart warmed and my soul energized to serve God in the church.  I wanted to help others enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ that would change their lives and bring them into a community of others walking the journey of faith with Christ.

My relationship with God

My husband Lew and I are on an adventure with God who is leading us to give of ourselves daily to connect people with Christ so that they want to know and follow Christ with us.

Working at Trinity UMC

God is leading us into deeper connection with God, new connections with people whom we will soon meet, and connecting with others in partnership to care, love, and serve those in need.
