was born and raised in South Bend Indiana. In 1983 Debra accepted the call of God to minister under a prophetic, evangelistic and teaching mantle. She serves as assistant pastor to her husband Dr. Dennis Givens who is the founder of a thriving church New Horizons Outreach Ministry.
One of the greatest mandates that Debra has accepted from God is the responsibility to impart knowledge to the body of Christ by equipping and mobilizing this generation towards strategic spiritual warfare. God has gifted Debra to carry out this mandate through the use of a highly effective psalmist anointing. Birthed from the psalmist ability is the music ministry team "High Praise," which she founded many years ago. High Praise has been invited to minister in song to many and is instrumental in helping to set the captive free through songs of deliverance.
Debra continues to write and produce songs that inspire the hearts of many to appreciate praise and worship unto God.
