debra.bors@efca.org

Peter and Debra are our regional leaders working with the director of U.S. projects in the Eastern U.S., with special emphasis on the cities of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. In these cities, they train, coach, and mentor both college ministry site leaders and youth group participants during the summer and encourage them to take next steps in ministry. Peter and Debra also supervise participants in the city and oversee logistics, including housing, meals, and ministry sites, as well as developing ministry partnerships that provide effectiveness and sustainability. They are passionate about maintaining relationships in our current city sites and developing new sites within the eastern U.S. As the parents of four adult daughters and with years of experience in youth pastoring, Peter and Debra enjoy working with college and high school students because they see an opportunity to help mold young people and discuss Scripture with students, who always seem to ask so many great questions. They are adventurously expectant as they live full-time in their RV, which allows them the mobility to continue to build partnerships with churches, universities, and the next generation.
