Debbie Switzer

Pre-Via de Cristo

Debbie made Cursillo Weekend #44. She attends Christ Fellowship Church in Palm Beach Gardens with her husband, Tom.

She has 2 sons that live locally and  Tom has 2 sons that live in MA. Together, they have 8 grandchildren.

Debbie works as an Administrator for the two Freedom & Care Pastors at the Christ Fellowship Gardens Campus.

One of Debbie’s favorite memories was when she traveled to Italy with her girlfriends in 1997.  While in Rome, a friend living there arranged for her to connect with his friend, who just happened to be a priest at the Vatican. He took her and her friends on a private tour of St. Peters, and spent hours walking the streets of Rome and sharing all kinds of history and food.

Debbie serves on the Secretariat of Gold Coast Via de Cristo because serving on the weekends and getting to know the Via de Cristo community has been a highlight for her. She feels this is an opportunity to get more connected within the community and fulfill some Apostolic Action…make a friend…be a friend…bring a friend to Christ.

The love and grace that pours from the GCVDC community is a true testament to how God works through our lives. Before VDC, I had no idea the amount of love that exists to us. VDC has changed my life in such an impactful way. Not only is my relationship with Christ so much stronger, but also the growth I have seen within myself has been remarkable. Surrounding yourself with a community of people who believe in you and cheer you on at every season of your life has made the difference. If you are looking to find an amazing, supportive community of believers, look no further and come join our family.

Gold Coast Via de Cristo is one of the purest organizations I have ever been a part of. The Via de Cristo Weekend is a powerful tool to growing spiritually, growing in your understanding of God’s love and grace, and growing in Christian leadership.

Via De Cristo is the life time opportunity to experience the love and grace of God in a community environment that will provide you with the tools to grow in Christ for all your life.
