About Rev. Cyndy W. ...
Cyndy enjoys welcoming new people to the church and encouraging them to share their stories while finding connections within the story of our faith. She might also be found wielding a hammer at a UCC Habitat Build, knitting with the Prayer Shawl Ministry, facilitating a book conversation with the WILD Women Book Club or leading a Mission Pilgrimage group in Nicaragua or El Paso. She’s always ready to sit down for a cup of tea and conversation. Cyndy’s sense of hospitality is grounded in her communion table theology where Christ’s unconditional welcome is extended to all.
Rev. Twedell gives leadership to Outreach Ministries, Women’s Ministries and New Member Ministries. Since she began serving on the UCC ministerial staff in 1987 she has also served in a number of other capacities during times of staff transition.
Cyndy literally grew up in the church as her mother and grandmother were very active in music ministries and behind the scenes leadership. They inspired in her an appreciation for God’s gifts of grace and a confidence in God’s call. Cyndy is a graduate of Texas Christian University and Brite Divinity School and was ordained in 1982 in the church that nurtured her young faith, Central Christian Church of Vernon, Texas.
