CARMEN CLEAVELAND - Ministry Team Leader

  • Carmen serves on staff part-time as the Ministry Team Leader. Carmen received her B.S. in education from Cincinnati Christian University, then continued studies at College of Mt. St. Joseph and earned her teaching license in grades 1-8. She has a current Indiana teaching license and has 18 years of experience working with students in public and private schools.
  • One of Carmen's passions is helping people come to the realization of God's immense, never-ending, extravagant love for them and seeing God use that to bring redemption and healing into their lives. She also loves to be involved in serving and blessing the people of Fort Wayne! Carmen is a huge fan of Mother Theresa and works from the idea that "small things done with great love will change the world". Aside from her 4 children and their amazing spouses, Carmen's great love in this life is Mark. Although she unwinds by reading, gardening, and hanging out in the barn, her new favorite pastime is riding with Mark on his Harley!
