On Saturday Night August 27th, 2011 a large crowd of people packed into a small church in Centralhatchee to celebrate the 19th Pastoral Anniversary of Pastor Debbie Kendrick.

The Evangelist Mary Nell Burden organized this amazing event and the Heard Citizen was there live with our video cameras to cover the event. Click here to see photos from the service.

After a very energetic program at the church everyone moved to the Centralhatchee Community Center for a nice dinner catered by Rutledge’s Cafe.

A little background about Pastor Debbie Kendrick : She became a Christian when she was just six years old and she graduated from Heard High School in 1975.  She was voted by her class as “Most Likely to Succeed” and was awarded a leadership award by the faculty.

She began to preach at the age of 19 and became a Pastor at the age of 35.  She authored a book in 20o4 about achieving success in marriage called “Till Death do us Part.”

They have one son, (Lee) Harvey A. Kendrick ,age 29, who is married to Tabitha Pike Kendrick and they have two grandchildren named Isaiah & Jasmine.  In her own words Pastor Debbie describes her life:

I love and enjoy my life, because Jesus is my life and He has given me such a wonderful family to enjoy in this life!!!!  I am so thankful for Jesus saving me at a very young age and for this journey I have been on with Him all of my life!!!!  I have seen and experienced many miracles in my life.  I know my God is Real and He Can Do Anything!!!  He has proven it over and over again in my lifetime!!!  No matter what valley in life I have walked thru Jesus was there to bring me out of the valleys to the mountain top so I could look back and see where I was and where I am today!!!  I have so many testimonies of His Mercy and Grace, because He has done for me what no doctor or person could do in my life over and over again!!!“- Pastor Debbie Kendrick
