Cindy recently came on board IFI to serve as Ministry Leader in her hometown: New York City (NYC). As an Appointee to this role, her primary responsibilities will be focused on ministry partner development, a process which may take up to 12 months.
Cindy knows all too well what it feels like being the new person in a new city with a desire to connect with others for friendship. Throughout her life’s journey, she’s lived in five US cities and in the Liguria region of Italy. In one of her adopted hometowns, she was employed by an institution of higher education where she worked with all stakeholders of the college including students. Because of this, God has drawn her heart to want to help advance IFI’s mission in creating contexts that will befriend and extend hospitality to the sojourner.
For the past 10 years, she’s held various ministry positions which have included fundraising, teaching, mobilizing volunteers, working directly with churches and motivating members of her church to perform acts of mercy.
Cindy is passionate about telling others about the unending mercy and transforming grace God extends toward all who choose to faithfully draw near to him. She is filled with much hope and looking forward to experiencing what God will do by merging her experience neatly into one.
Cindy has taken a giant leap of faith by joining the IFI team and agreeing to help lay a foundation in New York City. In order to equip and help her to lay that first brick, she is focusing on building her team of monthly partners and supporters. She is also prayerfully aiming to recruit a group of people that will agree to walk together in the good works God has already prepared for them.
