Cheryl was working as a newspaper reporter when she met Jesus. An interview with some Youth for Christ kids led to an invitation to a Bible study, where she finally began to understand what it means to follow Christ. She and Bob met through a mutual friend, got to know each other long-distance (she in Colorado, he in Illinois) and married in 1989. They have one son, one daughter and a new son-in-law.
In 2009 they came to the Vineyard, where Cheryl now handles communications—website, bulletin, newsletter, slides, posters—manages the calendar and building requests, and works on special projects.
She loves living in the old part of Dundee and taking walks in the downtown area along the river. Curling up with some great historical fiction is her favorite pastime, and she also enjoys travel and board games.
