PASTORAL announcement

PASTORAL announcement


I am pleased to make the following important announcements regarding pastoral appointments at Ingomar Church effective July 1, 2020:

First, Reverend Gregory D. Cox has been appointed by the Conference as Senior Pastor of Ingomar Church, effective July 1, 2020. The SPRC Committee shares the District Superintendent’s strong recommendation regarding Pastor Greg’s abilities to assume this challenging pastoral appointment.

Second, I am also pleased to announce the Conference’s appointment of Reverend Dr. Cyndi Bloise as Ingomar Church’s new Associate Pastor. Pastor Cyndi has served in the ministry for 19 years and is currently serving as senior pastor at Jefferson United Methodist Church in the Clairton area of the South Hills of Pittsburgh.  Prior to serving at Jefferson United Methodist Church, Pastor Cyndi has also served at Monroeville United Methodist Church as well as several other charges in the region. 

Pastor Cyndi has been very involved with various outreach and connectional ministries in Western Pennsylvania and has been an active participant in numerous disaster relief and disaster mitigation team efforts.

The Staff Parish Relations Committee looks forward to welcoming Pastor Cyndi and her husband Frank to Ingomar Church in early July. Pastor Cyndi’s first Sunday with us will likely be on July 5, 2020.

In closing, the Staff Parish Relations Committee asks for you to keep in prayer all involved during this period of transition including the congregation at Jefferson United Methodist, as they will also be going through their own transition process.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Stan Bockoven
Chairperson, Staff Parish Relations Committee
