Lisa Cinciripini, Administrative Assistant

Secretary Lisa Cinciripini

Lisa Cinciripini has been the church secretary at Zwingli UCC since August, 2001. She has an Associate of Applied Science Medical Secretarial Degree and an Associate of Applied Science Degree in early childhood education. She was married in 1989 to Tom Cinciripini, a construction supervisor for Kane Builders Inc. They have two sons, Jacob and Kyle.

Lisa and Tom are active volunteers at Zwingli UCC in various areas and use those opportunities to share and grow in God's love. The Zwingli Nursery School is a very important part of Lisa's mission to the church and families in the Indian Valley area. Offering a quality early childhood education program at an affordable price has always been the goal at Zwingli and Lisa hopes with the hard work of the board and the staff to continue to offer that in the future.

A mission trip to Biloxi, Mississippi with 15 other Zwingli members is Lisa's most memorable volunteer time. This opportunity opened her heart to the victims of Katrina in a very personal way and was a great way to share God's love with those who have suffered such great hardship. This trip also built lifetime friendships with the other volunteers from Zwingli. Thank you to Zwingli Church for the opportunity to represent you in this relief effort.

Lisa has volunteered in community organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, community sports teams, YMCA, and civic clubs. Spending time with family is Lisa's favorite thing to do. She also enjoys sharing laughter and fun with friends. Lisa is a certified scuba diver with her husband Tom and enjoys vacationing and exploring the deep blue seas.
