Gordon Debever, M.A.


Gordon DeBever grew up in Southern California and was one of seven children raised in a devout Catholic family. Gordon completed his college education with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Radio Television and Film from California State University at Long Beach.

A year prior to graduation, Gordon made inroads into the television industry, successfully serving as a freelance cinematographer at several top television networks in the Los Angeles area. His career provided many unique and memorable adventures, but his greatest experience came in 1988 when Jesus Christ captured his heart while residing in Newport Beach. His faith and love for Jesus grew while attending church at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
