Debbie Nesbitt’s biggest joys are her husband, her children, and her students. But her greatest joy comes from her relationship with Jesus Christ. Saved as a young adult, she was challenged to serve God fully when she and her husband, Chuck, came to Fayetteville for schooling. The Lord brought them to Mission Blvd. Baptist Church; and in 1979, He asked her to teach in the newly-formed Christian school sponsored by Mission Blvd. Baptist. With a degree in elementary education from Great Plains Baptist University, she captured the hearts and imaginations of her young students for 22 years. The Lord then changed her duties and asked her to be the school’s elementary office secretary. For nine years she provided order, comfort, counsel, and hope to that office, fully vested with God’s grace, and sharing it with all.
Currently Mrs. Nesbitt serves as the elementary and pre-school assistant principal, a position she has held for the last two years. Her experience and wisdom as a teacher make her the perfect mentor for the elementary teaching staff. She embodies the patience, kindness, gentleness, and love needed by the extraordinary teacher of today. We are thankful she surrendered her heart and ambitions to The Lord and this ministry.
