                  Second grade teacher Cindy Nebel is married to St. John’s Senior Pastor, Rev. Mark Nebel. She has five children: Mary, Chelsea, Michael, Matthew and Clara.

                  I come from a Missouri Synod family with three sisters who are Lutheran school teachers, two brothers who are LCMS pastors, and a father who is a retired LCMS pastor.  My mom was also trained as a LCMS school teacher, but stayed home after getting married to raise our family.

                  My professional experience in teaching has all been in the Southern Illinois District, except for my first call, which was to  Arenzville, Illinois where I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades for one year.  After we were married and returned from my husband’s vicarage I taught for one year at St. Paul, Wood River, 3rd and 4th grades, five years at Faith, Godfrey, teaching 1st and 2nd grades,  five years at Trinity,  Centralia, teaching kindergarten, and four years at St. Mark’s, Steeleville where I taught 5th grade for one year, 5th and 6th and upper grade English for two years, and kindergarten and 6th grade Language Arts for one  year. Now I am happy to serve as a second grade teacher at St. John’s, Red Bud.

                  I attended what now is called Concordia University Chicago in River Forest, Illinois for my BA degree in Education with two concentrations, Math and English.

                              Hi there! I am Lindsey Hudak, formerly Lindsey Pfanstiel. I just got married on June 4th of this year so I’m still trying to get used to the new last name!

                              On November, 30th, 2008 I got commissioned and installed as the Director of Parish Music here at St. John’s Lutheran Church and School. My responsibilities include playing organ/keyboard for the church’s worship services, directing the choir and bell choir, teaching classroom music to the K-8 students at St. Johns, directing the school choir, and planning all of the special events that the school choir participates in (Grandparent/Special Guest Day in September, School Christmas services in December, and the annual Spring Musical in March/April.)

                              I grew up in Cape Girardeau, MO. My husband, Jonathan, works there as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Some of our hobbies include discussing philosophy/psychology/theology, playing music together (he plays guitar and bass guitar), and hiking in Southern Illinois’ Shawnee National Forest. I also enjoy arts and crafts
