Prior to beginning in pastoral ministry, Bishop Cynthia Moore-Koikoi spent 17 years as a school psychologist, helping students and parents see beyond barriers toward potential and possibility. Today, this daughter of a United Methodist pastor uses those same gifts as she leads the Western Pennsylvania Conference. 

In our conversation, we talk about what it was like to grow up a preacher’s kid, how a dream helped clarify her call to ordained ministry, and how she uses meditation, lectio divina, and acupuncture to help keep her spirit in shape. Listen and meet Bishop Cynthia Moore-Koikoi.
