Debbie Marie Williams was born August 8, 1955 in the beautiful state of West Virginia. She was the seventh of eight children born to Hattie and Jim. At the early age of eight, Debbie received a word from the Lord confirming her calling to the ministry and telling her that she would reach the Nations for Christ. This was the beginning of her walk and growth in God as she was submerged in all areas of church life. Debbie married Terry Howell in August, 1974. She is now the mother of two children and grandmother to five. Both of her children have served in full time ministry and all four grandchildren are serving the Lord and active in the local church.

They served with pastors for 8 years training for full-time ministry. They pastored together at Dickson City Assembly in Scranton, PA for 10 years. God then opens doors for a challenging move to Florida to give birth to and establish Living Water Fellowship in Kissimmee. Debbie has served the past 14 years as co-pastor with her husband.
