Debbie Smythe is from Lynden, WA and has been married to Dan for 43 years. They have 2 adult children who are married and have blessed them with 2 precious grandsons.

Debbie has been a Precept Bible study leader for over 20 years and has been leading online Bible studies since 2013.

Debbie worked as a chemist until retiring to join her pastor husband in doing overseas ministry with Global Training Network. They have been focusing on training indigenous pastors and church planters in such places as Uganda, Cambodia, India and now Nepal, with an emphasis on training them in how to study the Bible inductively.

Debbie loves leading Women’s Bible studies and for the last several years has also been co-leading couples Bible studies along with her husband. It has been so fun to watch couples study the Word together!

When not studying, Debbie’s favorite pastimes are cycling, hiking, and camping. If not at her computer, you can usually find her out on the road somewhere on her bike. Life is an adventure!

Favorite verse: John 10:10b (Jesus speaking) …” I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
