We are pleased to welcome our new Senior Minister, Rev. Cindy Maddox.
Cindy grew up in the Midwest and South and received her Master of Divinity degree from Candler School of Theology, Emory University, in Atlanta. She served as the associate pastor of the First Congregational UCC in Asheville, North Carolina before becoming pastor of the King Street United Church of Christ in Danbury, Connecticut, where she has served for the past eight years.
Diane L. Harvey
Diane has been with us since September 2012 as Transitional Minister, and will continue to serve our congregation in that capacity through May 2014.
After 25 years of settled ministry serving three different congregations in Minnesota, Diane moved to Maine in 2006 to specialize in Interim and Transitional Ministry. South Portland is her fourth interim, and she is excited to be sharing with Cindy Maddox and the congregation in this time of change and new possibilities.
Her life’s journey has taken Diane from New England where she was born, raised and attended college to the West Coast where she attended seminary, worked as a hospital chaplain and was ordained in 1981, then to Minnesota and now back to New England. Two highlights of her ministry have been the opportunity to serve as volunteer staff at Iona Abbey, on the island of Iona, Scotland, and to preach with a Swahili translator at a village congregation in Isimani, Tanzania.
Diane and her husband, the Rev. John Heinl, a retired UCC minister now historical museum docent, live in Kittery Point, Maine. Contact Diane at 799-3361 or by email.
