Cindy serves at Advent as Minister of Faith Formation. Faith Formation is our life-long, all ages reach toward the Way of Jesus. She comes alongside as the pastor who will walk with you on your faith journey. Advent Church is that church that seeks to help you discover and grow in your faith walk, whether you’re 1 year old, 10 years old or 100 years old. Cindy also supervises the nursery staff, ADVENTure Kids ministry, Sunday morning staff and is staff liaison to the Care Team.  You will also find her hanging out with our Cub Scout Pack 449, Boy Scout Troop 449 and the Trustees (just because she loves moving things around the building so much). She’s also a camp leader, crafter, and serves in many different capacities within our Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Cindy and her husband have three grown children scattered around the United States, giving them the opportunity for some awesome road trips.  See the USA in your Honda Civic (doesn’t have the same ring to it does it? Her favorite new thing is experiencing the Eagan community as a new resident and volunteering with Dakota County.  Her overriding summer passion is Lynx Basketball, our three-time championship WNBA team! Just ask her, she’ll talk your ear off about it. She still runs the occasional 5k when her knee isn’t complaining and will never again do a half-marathon.

Her guiding Bible verse has always been and remains: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”  (exclamation point is her addition to the Scripture), because doings for Jesus is just about the best “job” in the whole wide world.          Philippians 4:13
