Debbie Schiess is a speaker, Bible study teacher, and ministry leader. She has served on staff at several churches as a Women’s Ministry Director as well as coordinating or speaking at workshops, conferences, and retreats in different ministry settings. Debbie desires to be a conduit of God’s grace and love by encouraging and caring for people or simply listening to someone’s heart story. She is excited to be a part of the Planting Roots team in order to share her story of God’s faithfulness in her military journey and encourage other women in theirs.
She grew up overseas as a missionary kid which helped prepare her for the transitional life of being a military spouse. Debbie has been married to her high-school sweetheart, Doug, for over 30 years. They have been an Air Force, and now Space Force, family for over 28 years and counting. They have two adult daughters and a son-in-law who are their favorite people to hang out with.
Debbie loves to create- whether it is decorating a beautiful room, baking a scrumptious-looking cake, or arranging flowers. She loves to travel, spend time outdoors, and share time around a table with friends. She is currently serving as the Events Team Director.
