Bobbi Jo Cyr

 
 

Bobbi Jo Cyr was born in Aurora but raised in a Navy family so moved around quite a bit. Bobbi is now living at her 30th address! She loves to travel and see the world.

Bobbi received her Bachelor’s in Business Marketing in May 2003 from California Lutheran University.  During her time there she was very active in campus ministries and student government.  Bobbi loved planning new and exciting events for the campus and interacting with fellow residents.  In September 2003, Bobbi left for Japan as a missionary through the ELCA Global Missions program. While learning Japanese, she taught English to youth in grades  7-12. After her time with the ELCA was complete, she felt that her calling in Japan was not finished and returned a year later to teach at a different school until 2013. Little did Bobbi know that when she left for Japan she”d be there for nine years! In 2013, Bobbi moved back to Aurora and became the Director or Youth Ministries at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Naperville, where she not only oversaw the junior high Confirmation program but wrote the curriculum for it as well as oversaw the senior high youth program.

Bobbi joined Bethlehem as Director of Youth Ministries on October 1, 2017.  She is passionate about the youth and how we, as a church, engage them in the life of the church and give them a voice.  When they know that their voice matters and that they, too, can make a difference, not only does their world change, but the church changes.  Bobbi says our youth are passionate, dedicated disciples who are not just the future of the church, they are the church.
