Who are the Cundiffs?
We are preparing to serve in Riga, Latvia, where Quintin will be teaching at the Luther Academy of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia, an LCMS partner church. He will also assist in the pastoral formation of ministry candidates who come from around Eurasia to attend the academy. Quintin hopes to be involved in the start of an English-language worship service in Riga for expats and English speakers.
Quintin is a native of Oberlin, Kansas. He has a bachelor’s degree in history from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska; a Master of Divinity degree from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri; and soon will be awarded a Doctor of Ministry degree from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. During his 10-year career, he has served congregations in Oregon, New Mexico, and Nebraska. He assisted with planting St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and served as the pastoral counselor for the LCMS Rocky Mountain District’s Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.
