Growing up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Cheryl had an interest in ministry from a young age. Her heart for missions grew through several mission trips as a high school youth leader. In 1998, she became a missionary with Mission to the World (MTW) serving as the Administrative Assistant with Caribbean Christian Center for the Deaf in Jamaica. In 2006, she transferred to MTW’s Medical Department in Lawrenceville, Georgia where she was responsible for sending short-term medical mission teams to areas in this hemisphere and Africa.
In 2014, Cheryl relocated back to Lancaster and joined the staff of Engaging Disability as the Ministry Assistant. She uses her administrative gifts and international experience to support all the aspects of this ministry. She has a particular burden for serving caregivers and families of those with disabilities.
Cheryl is a member of Wheatland Presbyterian Church in Lancaster. She knows sign language and dabbles in various hobbies. Her most recent endeavors have included cooking and baking, glass fusing, and jewelry making. She denies the accusation of being a foodie. Cheryl has remained a loyal Phillies fan through good years and bad (plus eight years living in Braves country) and also enjoys watching Penn State football.
