Introducing Rev. Dr. Larry Maley.
Larry and his wife Cyndi have a passion for Jesus Christ, a love for Christ’s Church and a desire to see the Gospel message impact people’s lives. They have served in ministry together during their thirty-two year marriage. Obviously, you’ll see and hear Larry as he ministers and serves as Park’s Interim Pastor. As Cyndi says, “He’s the out front, public persona.” Cyndi is the behind the scenes, prayer warrior and one-on-one servant.
The Maley’s have four children and six grandchildren who reside across the United States. They enjoy travel to visit family and worldwide travel, especially to see the work of Christ’s Kingdom around the world. They have assisted in guiding churches they have served to develop mission support in Haiti, Turkey, Spain, India, Korea, Brazil, Africa and throughout the United States. Their personal travels have taken them to Egypt, China and India to see and work with Christians.
Larry brings a rich and diverse background to his forty-two years of pastoral ministry. For seventeen years, Larry served as an interim minister at churches in Ohio, Nebraska and Missouri. Besides pastoral ministry, he has worked as a lawyer, judge, certified mediator, business instructor at Ohio University, and television station President in Columbus, Ohio. He was the founding President of Habitat for Humanity of Fairfield County, Ohio; founding President of the Lancaster Youth Football League, Chairman of the Board of Mid-Ohio Psychological Services, and a member of the United Way Board of Directors. While Larry stayed busy at various activities, Cyndi, who has a Master’s degree in Counseling, managed to raise some incredible children! To God be the Glory!
The Maley’s recently moved to our area to stay with Cyndi’s mother in Ellwood City. Despite officially retiring with the Presbyterian Board of Pension, Larry believes the Lord still has work for him to accomplish. Thus, he brings his broad professional background, doctorate in Interim Ministry, history of successful ministry service, and most of all, love for Christ’s Church to our congregation. They pray their efforts will deepen Park Church’s spirituality and prepare us for God’s glorious future plans. Don’t be hesitant about approaching Cyndi and Larry – they love sharing with Christ’s children and watching His Kingdom grow!
