Debi Ishmael

Pastoral Care Administrative Assistant

Debi began working at Greenville Oaks in February of 2010. Debi works alongside Galon Jones in the areas of Pastoral Care, Missions and Benevolence.

Debi and husband, Greg, are high school sweethearts who during college, eloped and were married in Hawaii in 1982. They were blessed with three children who are all married. Their son Brandon is married to Jennifer and they have a daughter, Isla. Son, Brian, is married to Nina, and also attend Greenville Oaks. Daughter, Lauren, is married to Josh and lives in The Woodlands.

Debi and Greg, originally from Oklahoma, lived in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts for 15 years, where strong friendships were developed and their faith deepened walking along life with other Christians. Moving back to Texas and closer to family in 1999 – they had been looking forward to having many choices of churches to attend. Greenville Oaks was the first church they attended, (then named the Allen Church of Christ) and their children were instantly connected and did not want to look any further. Again, blessed to find dear friends and fellow Christians to walk through life with and allowing their faith to grow.

Debi enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, playing games and vacationing - especially time on the beach.
