Rev. Cibele Santos
Cibele Santos is an Ordained Presbyterian PCUSA Pastor since last September. She has a Master of Divinity from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary, and she completed a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) in Clinical Pastoral Counseling from Colorado Theological Seminary. Prior to her Ministerial Education she earned a Doctor of Medicine in Brazil in 2007 and post-graduate studies in Occupational Health. Cibele and her brother had the privilege to go to Medical School together in Brazil; he is a General Gastrointestinal Surgeon. Her mother is a Clinical Biochemist and the right hand of dad's ministerial work: the Reverend Dr. Eudóxio Santos. He is an Ordained Presbyterian Pastor in Brazil for the last 40 years and very involved with Missions and Church planting. Cibele has three wonderful children, Ana Julia Almeida (Juju––9 years old), Beatriz Almeida (Bia––8 years old) and Antonio Joseph Almeida ( AJ––5 years old). They are the light of her life. “With everything that God has given me they are by far the greatest gifts of all. It is a privilege and gift to be called Mama.” Juju is starting 5th grade; Bia is starting 3rd grade; AJ is a Kindergarten. I am humbled and grateful to be a Pastor at Providence Church. Providence is a warm, loving church that will embrace you as the Body of Christ.
