The Church Is Catholic
Thursday, October 3rd, 2019
Speaker: Debbie Herbeck
Growing up in Chicago in a conservative Jewish family, Debbie Herbeck had a strong Jewish identity, but a family tragedy brought her to a place of deep questioning and confusion. As a college student, for the first time Debbie met others who professed faith in Jesus. Through her developing friendships and a series of events, Debbie began her search for truth and an understanding of the person of Jesus and His Church.
For the past thirty years, Debbie has worked extensively in youth and women’s ministry. She is the director of Pine Hills Girls Camp and the co-founder and leader of Be Love Revolution, a movement dedicated to helping young women encounter and be God’s love in the world. Debbie works with Renewal Ministries speaking at conferences and retreats about spiritual growth, discipleship, and her journey to the Catholic Church.
She has written Safely Through the Storm: 120 Reflections on Hope; Firmly on the Rock: 120 Reflections on Faith; and Love Never Fails: 120 Reflections on Love. She and her husband Peter co-authored When the Spirit Speaks: Touched by God’s Word.
Debbie and Peter have four children and seven grandchildren. They live in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
