Community Engagement Director
As Shoreline’s Community Engagement Director, Deb “connects the dots” between the needs of our surrounding community and the capabilities of our church body. Debra loves that God has given her what she considers “her dream job.” The ultimate goal of community outreach is to help the people of our community realize they have a hope and a future in Jesus Christ. Debra has attended Shoreline Community Church since 1996 and has a passion for serving God, family, and the community. She believes in putting God’s love in action and taking the church outside of its walls. With the help of her fellow Shoreline parishioners, she aspires to reach the lost and needy through acts of service, kindness, and compassion in the local community.
Debra has strong ties to the Monterey Peninsula. She was raised in Monterey, and has worked for several school systems and for the City of Monterey’s Park and Recreation Commission. Debra is married to David Federico. She has three adult children, Jennifer Brinker (Jon), Stephen Mercurio, Jr., and Jason Mercurio; and two step children, Liana Deveso (Russell) and David Federico Jr. Debra enjoys spending time with her family, swimming, exercising, and visiting her granddaughters, Georgia Rose and Samantha Rae. The latest grandbaby, Lilly Rose Federico, was born in August 2009.
