Debbie Heden is the WM Director for the NorCal/Nevada District of the Assemblies of God. She has held the position for seven years after serving under the previous two WM Directors on their advisory board. There is nothing that stirs up Debbie’s passion more than witnessing women of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds coming together and becoming all that God created them to be. She is a firm believer that Spirit-filled leadership is a catalyst for positive change, both in the church and the individual.
Debbie approaches ministry as an opportunity to inspire. This includes hosting an annual women’s conference (designed for women to experience an encounter with Jesus) and several events throughout the year (designed to equip the women of her great district). Her greatest ministry strengths are training leaders, strategically developing spiritual gifts, and hosting/planning events.
Debbie wears many hats as an ordained minister, a licensed cosmetologist, and a Pastor’s wife. Debbie and her husband have pastored Hilltop Community Church in Richmond, CA for the past 33 years. She is a proud mother of two sons, two daughter-in-laws, and two (gigantic) incorrigible dogs.
The Area Leader is the WM Representative in each section. She is the vital link between the District and the local church. Every year, the Area Leader hosts the Sisterhood Events that give you the opportunity to gather, grow & give with a community of women near you. Your Area Leader is determined by where your church is located.
