Helping Hands Secretary
Deborah DeLoach works alongside with Dr. Jim Hastings in the Helping Hands Ministry at Sagemont Church. Deborah is from Los Angeles, California. After meeting her husband, she relocated to Houston, Texas where she resides today. Through Sagemont Church’s mission trip, Deborah and John had the great opportunity to visit Israel. While there, they had the great experience to be married by Dr. Stuart Rothberg at the Mt. of the Beatitudes overlooking the Sea of Galilee. John and Deborah have been married for three years. In her career, both private and public, Deborah has had extensive, and a broad range of business experiences. After arriving in Houston, she became a private investigator/case management worker. She was assigned the most difficult cases. Her responsibilities included; background investigations, surveillance for all types of fraud, drug dealers, infidelity, and child custody cases. She owned and operated a full service Day Care Center/Pre-School. She owned and operated a clothing store selling beautifully imported goods from India for women to wear. Deborah also owned and operated a medical weight loss and fitness facility for people who were struggling with their weight or athletes seeking to push their body further. Deborah does not think of her current position as ”just a job”, but rather a personal ministry and life’s mission to serve the Lord. She truly believes God has given her an unwavering heart for people, specifically for the people of Houston. In her current position she can utilize her talents and her vast professional knowledge to help and serve others of Sagemont and the community. Deborah deeply enjoys her position at Sagemont and being used by God. She is encouraging and helpful to others, guiding them “through their immediate” situation, but most importantly showing them the love of the Lord and leading them to their own walk with God. Deborah truly seeks to have her life guided by Mathew 25:40 “whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.’” Deborah has a small women’s ministry called “God’s Sunshine Sisters” that is found on Facebook where the Lord is lifted up and shared to women who are hurting or just need a Christian sister friend. In her personal time Deborah, enjoys doing crafts, and being with her husband John, and of course, going back home spending precious time with family.
