Cindy Stover - Justice Mobilizer

Cindy Stover is the Justice Mobilizer for the Christian Reformed Church in Canada. Having grown up in Northern Ontario, she's a country girl at heart, but also loves her close-knit neighbourhood in downtown Hamilton, where she is a part of Eucharist Church, a multi-denominational worshipping community that seeks to find creative ways to practice hospitality in their city. She holds a Master's Degree of Theology in Urban and International Development from Wycliffe College at the Univesity of Toronto, where she was first welcomed into CRC Campus Ministries (which became her safe place during many hard years of studying!). Cindy is interested in seeing people realize God's call to enact justice and mercy in every area of our lives, from how we shop, to how we talk to our neighbours, to how our churches respond to the most vulnerable. She can often be found reading a good book around a campfire, or watching a BBC miniseries with a cup of tea. Contact Cindy at [email protected].

Committee for Contact with Government

The Committee for Contact with Government was founded in 1968.  Its work is rooted in a vision that the CRC in Canada has a calling to interact with Canadian society and governments “on the significant and pressing issues of the day.”  The committee is comprised of members from across Canada.  Read more about each of the members at this link.
