New Mexico DFZ State Director
Rebecca Chavez - Executive Director, Founder, Speaker I am married to my best friend Gerry Chavez, who is the lead pastor of Christ's Church, and we make our home in Roswell, New Mexico. I have two grown sons, Benjamin and his wife Nicole are our youth pastors and Nick who is studying at Texas Tech University.
I serve as Co-Women’s Ministry Leader at Christ’s Church and my heart beats to speak and write about my struggles, weaknesses and triumphs in order to bring hope and freedom to others. I just may be painfully transparent! I love to encourage and launch people into their God given gifts and passions. I have raised a family, been in support ministry for years and understand the lie that it is too late to start or do something that matters.
To this end I have written many original bible studies, “Stringing Pearls” a study on Ruth, “The Chamber” a study on the Song of Solomon, and “Deborah the Brave” based on Deborah the Prophetess just to name a few. Please visit our event topics page to see the entire list of Bible Study and event topics available.
I founded Deborah The Brave Ministries and The Deborah Project out of love for The Bride of Christ and the land and people of Israel. Growing up in a divorced home, experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and Anxiety as an adult I believe have made me a more compassionate person and in a small way allowed me to identify with the lost and broken. We are all equally in need of God’s love and mercy.
I also believe without the support of other 'Deborah' spirited friends I would never have launched out to find my voice and step out into the unknown of starting a ministry and outreach project. To them and my church community, I am eternally grateful. God is raising up modern day Deborah’s, mothers and fathers willing to fight for faith, family and freedom in Christ and become all God intended them to be.
I love walking the streets of Jerusalem, the beach, a great cup of coffee with great conversation, diving into a new study book and I must add, it's always a good idea to have a few pushy friends!!
