Debra B. Morton
New Orleans native Debra B. Morton is a leader, teacher, pastor, and entrepreneur who serves alongside her husband, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr., at Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church in New Orleans, LA, and is the co-pastor of Changing a Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. When she was ordained as an elder in 1993, she earned the ground-breaking distinction as one of the first ordained female elders to preach in a Baptist pulpit. A Stellar Award nominee and James Cleveland award winner, she has gone on to executively produce an album and write several songs, open a troubled teen girls home, and help her husband to rebuild and expand a great ministry. But of all of her many accomplishments, she takes her greatest pride in her personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and her roles as a wife, mother of three children and grandmother of seven.
