Greetings Everyone,

      Just a little about me if you are new to this site or church.  I am a native of Wheeling, WV and attended West Liberty University and received my Bachelor's Degree in Education.  I was a classrooom teacher until the year 2000 when I entered Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.  At Trinity, I received my MDiv and then received a call to St. James Lutheran Church, Wheeling, WV.

      I love the work that I do to give praise to Christ as well as his Church.  Many times the work can be very overwhelming; therefore, I take much needed spiritual time to gather my thoughts and renergize. 

     My personal time is consumed with three lovely shih tzu dogs - Samuel, Isaac and Elsie.  They give unconditional love and never cease to be excited to see me no matter how long I have been gone.  I also enjoy going to the local gym to exercise, while listening to music. 

                                          Well, enough about me, I hope you enjoy this site and are able to use it to keep in touch with all the ministry that we do at St. James as well as our communitiy.  Let us continue to pray for each other that we may be one in Christ.




Rev. Deborah L. Gable, Pastor
