Rev Deb Hinksman

Deb is a semi-retired minister who serves at Ladysmith First United Church. She is a musical theater buff and secretly a Broadway “wanna-be”! On sabbatical many years back, she asked God to help her discern a word that should be at the core of her ministry and she heard that her word was “Joy!” For over 40 years she has been blessed with sharing God’s joy with people and walking with them as they discover God’s joy in their own lives.

Creative in her heart, joy has come through drama, stand-up comedy, women’s retreat leadership, youth ministry, storytelling, and cruise ship worship leader. One of the highlights in her early ministry was taking a group of 16 teenagers to India to explore the culture and their faith. She believes that everyone has gifts to serve God and that we are all blessed to be a blessing!
