Debbie Provencher has served as Executive Director of Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center since 2006. Lighthouse is a ministry in North Jersey that guides women, men and teens facing unplanned pregnancies toward life-enhancing choices. She came to Lighthouse with a background in public relations, and a heart for serving young adults. Debbie has been instrumental in growing the center from one to four locations, and forming creative collaborations to support under-resourced parents. Debbie and her husband, Fred, who serves as senior pastor of Cornerstone Christian Church in Wyckoff, have four adult children, a daughter-in-law, two sons-in-law, and a grandchild on the way!
Ten years in youth ministry and nearly three decades of parenting and premarital counseling motivated the Provenchers to create a student curriculum called Sex Matters, which is now part of the pregnancy center’s REALife Relationship and Love Training. Debbie and Fred serve as REALife presenters, and also spend time together preparing couples for marriage. In their spare time, they enjoy walking their dogs, reading, gardening, and hanging out with their children. Debbie is currently pursuing a Master’s in Evangelism and Leadership at Wheaton College.
