Deborah J. Merritt currently serves as the Executive Pastor of Christ Emmanuel Christian Fellowship of Cincinnati, Ohio and community pastor of the city. She is among the first of females to serve as an executive pastor in an urban church. She is responsible for the management of the CECF staff; day to day operations; and fiscal planning and budgeting. She maintains the visibility of CECF in the community by representing Christ Emmanuel as they partner with other community organizations. Deborah has over 40 years in ministry, as a community liaison and local church leadership.

Deborah loves God and ministers with prophetic insight and precision. Her work reflects her passion to see hope and healing through rebuilding the human spirit. Deborah is a gifted and sought after teacher, preacher, and administrator who enjoys ministering to the body of Christ. Being an excellent lecturer of spiritual truths in the Word of God that are applicable for everyday living, Deborah is an avid counselor and teacher. She is committed to aid people in understanding their Godly ordained journey that leads to success and mastery in life.

Deborah received her B.A. in Biblical Studies and Organizational Leadership, and is pursuing her Masters in Urban and Intercultural Studies at Cincinnati Christian University.
