Return to About First Presbyterian Church Henderson


Reverend Michele Goff


Reverend Michele was born in Wichita Falls, Texas and raised in northeastern Oklahoma. As a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, she is a proud Oklahoma Sooner.  Before answering the call to full time ministry, Michele worked in television production for a well-known sports network for 12 years.  She graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.  In January 2019, Michele accepted a call to serve First Presbyterian Church Henderson.  Reverend Goff and her husband Larry have rescue dogs.  In her free time, she enjoys reading – specifically science fiction, and knitting.




Debbi Ricci – Administrative Assistant

Debbi hails from the great state of Massachusetts (no she’s not from around here!). Debbi raised her two sons in Massachusetts and coincidentally her second husband also raised his two children there. Once their children were grown, Debbi and her husband embarked on a new adventure – they became lighthouse keepers for three years. After braving the harsh New England winters for so long, they decided to move to Florida.

While in Florida, Debbi worked for the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce, the Charlotte Community Foundation, and the Sarasota Ballet. These opportunities allowed Debbi to grow her office management and nonprofit skills. Three years ago, Debbi and her husband Bill moved to Henderson where they are close to family including two of their six grandchildren. They are also the proud parents of a rescue German Shepherd named Bailey. When not working or enjoying grandchildren, Debbi enjoys kayak fishing, counted cross stitch embroidery, reading, ceramic and paper crafting.
