DEBBIE PROVENCHER

Executive Director, Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center

Debbie Provencher serves as Executive Director of Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center, a ministry in North Jersey that guides women, men and teens facing unplanned pregnancies toward life-enhancing choices. She came to Lighthouse in 2006 with a background in public relations, and a heart for serving young adults in pregnancy-related crisis. Debbie has been instrumental in growing the center from one to three locations, and forming creative collaborations to support under-resourced parents. The center’s Paterson partner, RENEW Life, offers transformational education programs to help parents from poverty backgrounds thrive. Together with Young Life, Lighthouse launched YoungLives Paterson, an outreach to teen moms. Debbie and her husband, Fred, who serves as senior pastor of Cornerstone Christian Church in Wyckoff, NJ, have four adult children. Ten years in youth ministry and more than two decades of parenting and premarital counseling motivated the Provenchers to create a student curriculum called Sex Matters, which is now part of the center’s REALife Relationship and Love Training. Debbie and Fred serve as REALife presenters, and enjoy walking their dogs in any spare time they can find.
