Debra Loveless is a native St. Louisan who serves as an administrative assistant for the Workday
ministry. Among her various responsibilities is leading the JOY Group (Just Older Youth), which is the
senior citizens ministry of New City Fellowship Church. Loveless and her husband, Parker, have three
grown children (Dana, Jordan and Anna), and one grandchild. The family began attending New City
Fellowship in 2005. They were attracted by the church’s emphasis on multicultural worship—a foretaste
of the Kingdom of Heaven! Before joining the New City Fellowship staff, Loveless worked as a journalist
and as a homemaker.
