CINDY FENNIG
cfennig@nocc.org

Job Title: 
Office & Facilities Manager 

Home Town: 
I was born in Detroit, Michigan but moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota while still a toddler. From there it was on to Webberville, MI; Muskegon, MI; Meridan, CT; Camarillo, Ca; Waukegan, IL; and back to Camarillo, CA. This part of my life included at least 12 homes, maybe more. So I really don’t have a home town.

I am the oldest of 4, 3 younger brothers, the youngest having passed away in 2014. My Dad is once again living in Camarillo and my Mom is with Jesus. I have a wonderful husband-Randy, and 3 adult children, all married. I have 7 Grandkids, one in heaven.

What is your role at NOCC? 
As Office Manager, along with the 2 part-time staff in the front office, I am responsible for: making sure all the paperwork gets done-which includes the bulletin etc., the purchasing of equipment and materials, seeing that the bills get paid-which also includes payroll, missionary support; ministry events getting plugged into the all-church calendar; phones get answered; etc, etc, etc!
As Facilities Manager, I am responsible for scheduling the custodians which includes cleaning and being "on" for the Sunday services, maintenance and repair of equipment and the property, and scheduling the use of the property.

I get to talk to people, see projects through from start to finish, and work with the greatest group of people as we facilitate a passionate personal relationship with Jesus Christ leading to life long discipleship.

Randy and I jump in the car with our Nikon D100 and D80 to spend hours taking pictures which I plan on turning into picture books for us to look at with our grandchildren.

What do you count as the greatest invention of the last 100 years? Why? 
My vote goes to running, purified water that comes out of a faucet or shower head, swirls in a toilet, and ends up in a treatment plant since it has a positive impact on health and the amount of time it takes to keep a house and family clean.

Anyplace where my family is gathered is where I want to be.
If you could be on any reality television show, which one would it be?
