    “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10:27, NKJV)


    Cindy graduated from Lillington High School and Peace University. While living in Rolesville, NC, she was blessed to serve 13 years with the North Carolina Aquarium Society and 8 years with Faith Baptist Church in Youngsville.


    In February 2007, Tony (her husband of 36 years) asked if she would like to move back to Harnett County. A responding “YES” met with a close on their home March 31, 2007, and a friend sharing with her about a position open at Pleasant Union in October 2007. Cindy has been joyfully serving God’s family at Pleasant Union since February 2008.
