Passing the Baton


You may remember her as the guest speaker at our first banquet in 2017. However, Charis' Board of Directors is excited to reintroduce Cindy Sweeney to you today as Charis PHC’s Interim Director!

Cindy, along with her husband Jim, have been career missionaries for the past 20 years, mostly serving in the Dominican Republic. Whether she is teaching, public speaking, leading a mission team or mentoring, Cindy leans heavily on the Holy Spirit for continual guidance to reach people for the Lord.  Her strong gift of empathy enables her to speak hard truths with gentle words. Cindy is experienced in working with all denominations and those outside the Christian faith in ways that are thoughtful, considerate, and respectful. In her spare time she enjoys nothing more than time with her family, pets and her books (although maybe not always in that order).

 While we are beyond excited to have Cindy step in as Interim Director, it is with sadness and deep gratitude that we say thank you and goodbye to our Founder and Director, Maggie Wiesen. Maggie followed her dream of creating a Pregnancy Help Center in Fond du Lac, she did all the research and created a steering committee which later became the founding Board of Directors to assist in the project. After pouring out her heart, time and talents into Charis these past six years to make it what it is today, Maggie’s decided she needs a break allowing more time for her family. 

Charis has become the go-to place for women in Fond du Lac who need support and encouragement while making life affirming choices for their babies. Please join us in praying for Maggie and her family.  May God richly bless her for devoting so much time, energy and passion into this labor of love. We pray that after her “sabbatical“ Maggie might find herself drawn back to Charis to work with moms as a part-time volunteer.  We also ask that you pray for Cindy as she steps into this interim role with enthusiasm and a heart that truly beats for the pro-life cause. May God bless her with clarity and the wisdom necessary to build upon Maggie’s success, as well as the compassion, strength and endurance necessary in carrying the torch that provides life affirming support and care to mothers in the Fond du Lac area. We praise God for His faithfulness, for we know everything that is good comes from Him. May Charis continue bringing Him glory.
