Meet Our Interim Pastor: Cindy Peel

I grew up in Stow and attended the Kent Church of the Brethren since I was a baby. I attended Kent State & Ohio State Universities and received a BS in Respiratory Therapy. I worked as a therapist at St. Thomas hospital and Cleveland Clinic, among others. In the early 1980s, I served a year in Brethren Volunteer Service at Lend-a-Hand center in Kentucky and while there began to feel the call to ministry. I ended up going to Bethany Seminary, the Church of the Brethren seminary in Chicago. I received a Masters of Divinity in 1991. My first church was in Marion, Ohio. I served there for 11 ˝ years before moving back to the Akron area where I resumed my career in Respiratory Therapy. I started work at Seeley Medical in 2003. Seeley Medical is a DME company which provides medical equipment in the home. I work with patients for CPAP & oxygen therapy as well as those on ventilators at home. I work full time 8:30 – 5:00 Mon – Fri plus after-hours set-ups and am on-call every third week. Except for the times that I served as part-time pastor at the Woodworth Church of the Brethren and the Eastwood Church of the Brethren, I have been attending Springfield since 2003. Please contact me as needed by phone or text at 234-788-9154 or by e-mail If you text me and I don’t respond, please call me. My phone doesn’t always notify me when I get a text. Thank you for this opportunity to serve Jesus and His church as your interim. Please keep me in your prayers as you will be in mine. In Christ, Cindy

Pastor Cindy would like to welcome you to workship with us this Sunday morning.
