Director of Childhood Ministries

 Cindy Retherford

It is my passion to see the next generation know the Lord so that they would put their trust in Him and know of his abundant love for them. Believing that the Bible commands parents in Deuteronomy 6:4-5 to help their children grow in their relationship with Jesus as they go throughout the natural rhythm of their life I want the Children’s Ministry to come alongside them to help them make this command reality in their home. As families come to Mount Vernon it is my desire to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children can experience God’s Big Story through interactive lessons with teachers who desire to invest in them.

My husband, David, and I are both from Florida. We came to Boone in 2001 for David to begin working for Samaritan’s Purse. We both enjoy the beauty of the seasons in Boone and spending time in one of our favorite destinations, Disney World. We have one daughter,Sarah, who is a High School Science teacher in Kingston, TN. Some of my hobbies include reading,and spending time with my husband David.
