Cindy Rauser, Pastor
Pastor Cindy Rauser comes to Cimarron Praise United Methodist Church after serving three years as pastor to Fashing United Methodist Church. She currently lives in Bulverde, Texas where she played a vital role in planting a growing and vital new church community call Riverside Community Church. She and her husband have lead home based Bible studies and groups for many years. They felt the call to move from San Antonio to Bulverde for the purpose of starting a new church. The Alamo Heights United Methodist Church, their home church, would later join them in answering and fulfilling that call.
It was during this time of planting, Cindy realized God was calling her to serve the church in a more formal way as a pastor where she could share her passion for discipleship and building communities of faith.
Cindy graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary with a Master of Ministry Practices in 2014. Holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Food Science and Technology from Texas A&M University and is a native Texan from the greater Lubbock area where she received her High School diploma at Roosevelt High School.
She has work in food safety and quality control for several companies including H.E.B. Grocery, International Multifoods and Furr’s Cafeterias. Where she worked in regulatory compliance, microbiology, manufacturing, product development and sanitation.
Happily married to Gary Rauser, her spouse of thirty years. They share a love of fishing, camping, hiking and travel. She also loves photography, scrapbooking and other artistic endeavors.
