Meet James and Cheryl Cloyd: Alongside Partners Serving in Strasbourg, France

Since August 2016 James Cloyd has served as the Minister of the Cronenbourg Cité Luther Parish. This multi-cultural congregation worships God, shares the Gospel and creatively serves the needs of a diverse, low-income neighborhood, where 50 languages are spoken.

Cheryl’s ministry sees her taking part in God’s promise to disciple the nations through part-time work with Les Disciples, an after-school program which blesses hundreds of children and their families with tutoring and assistance.

The Cloyd’s have two children, Eric and Sarah.
