Meet our Leadership

Rev. Cynthia E. Skripak

Pastor Cyndi received her Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. Since her ordination in 1991, she has served churches in Troy, New York; Arcadia, California; and Croydon and Willow Grove in Pennsylvania, as well as preaching in Munich and Dresden, Germany. Her interests in ministry include welcoming all people, and sharing the joy of loving and being loved by God and God's people.
