Meet Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett
Growing up as a preacher’s kid in Kentucky, Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett dreamed of a career in athletics. A passion for education, led to a career in pastoral ministry, but those lessons from her athletic background never left her. For example, in basketball no one makes every shot. “So it’s so important not to focus on the misses,” she teaches, “but to keep moving forward.” Today, Bishop Debra serves as resident bishop North Alabama Conference. Also, as part of her work as a bishop, she serves on the World Methodist Council chairing their Committee on Evangelism. Meet Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett.
