Debbie Christian, corporate chaplain for Express Employment Professionals International Headquarters, has been named the company’s 2017 recipient of the Ralph Palmen Spiritual Leadership Award.
The international award is named in honor of the late Ralph Palmen, who made a tremendous impact on the growth and development of Express through his leadership and spiritual guidance. The award honors an individual who inspires others and always does the right thing.
“Debbie has a sincere passion for the spiritual well-being of our employees,” said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express. “She consistently puts the needs of others above her own, and her famous smile is contagious.”
Christian joined the company’s international headquarters in 1998. Before becoming the corporate chaplain in 2013, she served on the events team and in the company’s assistance center.
In her role, Christian spends countless hours at the hospital comforting those who have experienced loss or sickness. As corporate chaplain, she also leads office Bible studies, book clubs, and lunch and learn programs.
