​​Cindy Stover serves as a 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 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 University 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. Her favourite colour is sparkle.
