Rev Dr Deb Parr, who lives in Sherwood Park, was Ordained into the ministry of Clergy Support Memorial Church Feb 11 2010. She is caring, compassionate and a quality listener. Pastoral care flows from her to you no matter your age bracket. Deb tries to live by the motto ’Be kind to one another’. Her beliefs perfectly exemplify those of CSMC. Her goal is for people to see God and not her.
As an Ordained Minister, these are Rev Deb’s spiritual gifts that give her focus:
Worship – The ability to proclaim and apply God’s truth Sunday by Sunday so that believers may be edified, encouraged and consoled and non-believers convinced.
Pastoral Care – The ability to help others in their lives and ministries by aiding them in practical ways.
Prayer – The ability to pray faithfully for others and to identify specific answers to those prayers.
Discernment – The ability to distinguish between truth and error to know when a person or act is of God.
Faith – The ability to envision what God wants to happen and to be certain that He will do it in response to prayer, even when there is no concrete evidence.
Giving – The ability to support God’s work materially with generous timely and cheerful contribution.
Encouragement – The ability to motivate people through encouraging words to live practical Christian lives.
Mercy – The ability to empathize with those who are hurting and to translate that into cheerful acts of service.
