Leadership Development and Groups Pastor
Cindy provides overall leadership, vision, and growth to small groups. She carries out the vision of connection and discipleship for the congregation through groups.
Cindy was raised in Wisconsin where she came to an active faith in God with her parents during the Jesus people movement when she came to understand faith as an active relational connection with God. Since then she has been walking out her faith and growing in trust and truth, engaging with Him in every season of life.
Early on, Cindy's journey took her to Elim Bible Institute in Rochester, NY, where she met her husband Eric. They have four grown children and 6 grands so far! Together they have ministered in several states and in multiple ways including being youth ministers, college professors, and deans at their Alma Mater. Cindy went on to receive her Masters in Ministry through Southwestern Christian University, and then founded Bridges Coaching - a coach training and leadership development organization.
Experiencing a personal relationship with God and engaging in authentic relationship with others is Cindy's heartbeat. Echoing Worship Center's tagline to "Experience God, Grow Together and Serve Our World", Cindy believes connecting with others is where people walk out their real-life faith. As Executive Director of Small Groups since 2017, she is passionate about providing an inviting, practical, and powerful place for living out personal faith through authentic sharing, real-life application, and relational growth.
