Deborah was born again and filled with the Holy Spirit in 1979. A gifted teacher, she spends much time in the Word. She is actively involved pastorally and with the women's ministry of Crossfire Church, the local church she and her husband pastor. She and Harvey have been married for over forty years and reside in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Their three grown daughters have families of their own, all living in Colorado. Deborah spends much time enjoying her six grandchildren.
Deborah Ministries International was founded in 1996 by Deborah Wittmier. Deborah Ministries, Inc. began as a teaching and counseling ministry, however God had a much bigger plan for Deborah Ministries. In 1999, Deborah heard God's voice tell her to go to India and "see the work" there. God birthed a new thing within her and she received the call to move from a counseling focus in ministry to an international teaching ministry.
By 2006, groundbreaking work had taken place in many countries. Through the prophetic celebration of DMI's ten-year anniversary, God imparted an apostolic mantle to DMI. The year 2010 was marked as a year of exponential expansion for Deborah Ministries International with the launch of CrossFire International Alliance. The apostolic mantle that the Lord has placed upon Deborah and her husband Harvey finds its outlet through this alliance, the purpose of which is to build up and mentor leaders who are advancing the kingdom of God!
