About Me


My name is Deborah Shank and I have been married to my high school sweetheart and best friend for 36 years. We have served in ministry for 30 years.I am a mother of Brooke and Brandon and Grammy to Luke and Victoria. Bobby and I live in Northern Virginia where we have been co-pastoring for 11 years.

I am passionate about the things of God and His will for my life. I am a minister with the Assemblies of God, serve as the Women in Ministry Consultant for the Potomac District Council of the AG, and the Executive Assistant to the District Superintendent, am a mentor and speaker. I am a credentialed minister with the AG and serve as the Women's/Music Pastor at Belvoir Assembly of God, Marshall, VA. I am available to speak at retreats, ladies teas, women's meetings and conferences and would welcome the opportunity to fellowship with your group.

My passion is to mentor and encourage women and pastor’s wives. I can easily identify with the challenges each face. With a passion to lead women closer to the heartbeat of God, I connect with women of all ages and stages in their journey. My sincere desire is to be used by God in a way that will penetrate broken hearts and inspire women to cultivate a sincere relationship with Him. By openly sharing my real life experiences, I encourage women who need to be reminded that God has a specific plan for their lives.

Having spent 18 years in the corporate world before acknowledging God’s call to ministry, I am able to relate to women from all walks of life. I am an experienced speaker in the corporate and ministry fields and have been teaching and encouraging women for over 17 years. I often incorporate personal stories of growing up in a non-Christian home with an alcoholic father. For years I experienced feelings of insecurities, intimidation and loneliness as a pastor’s wife. My heart is to encourage women to look past their circumstances in life, and into the eyes of the One who wants to lead them to their God given destiny.

I would love to have the opportunity to speak at your event. I can tailor my messages to meet the needs of your conference, retreat, etc. Please contact me if you are interested in receiving a promo ministry pack. References available upon request. pastor_debbie@verizon.net.
