Hollidaysburg First Presbyterian Church

Our Pastor

Rev. Cindy Carlisle

It is a privilege to be called to serve FPC Hollidaysburg as Interim Pastor. Pastor Nominating Committees are formed to be a reflection of the congregation. I am, therefore, looking forward to ministering with a bright, hopeful and hospitable people.

Christ's church has been given the sacred calling to be a blessing to each other and the world. Transition time is holy space; a season set apart to discern how to be that blessing in a new day. We have the opportunity to reflect together on the past and to ask questions about the present and future:

Who are we as this part of the Body of Christ?

Who is the neighbor to whom this congregation is called to minister?

Who is God calling us to become and what is God calling us to do?

As we prayerfully address these questions, the Spirit will guide us, encourage us and strengthen us in the mission to which we are called. I am truly honored to be invited into the Hollidaysburg community for such a time as this.

Just a little about me. I was raised in Rockford, Illinois. After graduating with a BA in Psychology and Criminal Justice and an MA in Criminal Justice, I held positions in the field of criminal justice including corrections, research, and victim services. I received a Masters of Divinity degree from McCormick Theological Seminary and was ordained in 2007. Since then, I have served as Associate Pastor for Youth, Young Adults and Families in Baraboo, Wisconsin and as Interim Pastor for three congregations in Ohio. My husband Dave and I have had our home base in Youngstown, Ohio since 2010. I love spending time with Dave and our grown children Erica, Elizabeth and Ben. For leisure I enjoy reading (especially teen fiction), most kinds of music, ballroom dancing, sailing, and recently, watching old Andy Griffith episodes. Oh, and I love to eat.
