Cynthia Garris Ministries (CGM) is a family run Christian Nonprofit beginning our work in Christ. We started as a church in the basement of Pastor Cyndi before growing to a storefront. After ten years, our doors closed due to COVID, so we moved to an online based teaching style. A year later, God moved us to the Capital Region, and we began Cynthia Garris Ministries, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Now, we’re ready to begin our in-person services again, and we’re in need of a team who loves Jesus, and can be committed to CGM.
