Cindy Comiso // Associate Pastor

Though Pastor Cindy's journey with the Lord started strong (she was an ox in a Christmas pageant as a child), it wasn’t until her senior year at Princeton that Cindy came to the Lord. After many years of exuberant church service and some years of desperately longing to trust God more, she received her MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2001. She married Glen in 2005 and they are grateful to be parents of three children. A native New Englander and cancer-survivor, Cindy has a big heart to bring God's hope and love to the many amazing people whom she calls “neighbor” and “friend.”

Kathleen Sharkey // Interim KidsRock Director

Kathleen grew up right here on the South Shore where much of her family still lives today.  She is the mother of 3 boys, a certified spiritual director and you can even find her playing bass on the church worship team once and a while.  Kathleen has been married to Stephen since 2004.  When growing up, Kathleen had a deep love for the church and God's word, and she is passionate about seeing kids grow in that same love for Jesus and his ways.

Michael Maynard // Worship Director

Mike grew up as a pastor's kid moving 13 times across the east coast. His upbringing has made him increasingly passionate about bringing the love of Christ to people in unique avenues; music being one of his favorites.  Mike also owns his own coffee roasting company called 'Awaken Coffee' and strives to demonstrate the hospitality and service of Christ through his love of coffee.  He currently lives in Quincy with his wife Hannah and their two (rather loud, but very affectionate) dogs Mookie and Benni.

Dan Compitiello // Youth Group Director

Dan has been a part of Granite City since fall of 2013 when he moved from Long Island, NY to Quincy to attend Eastern Nazarene College, where he graduated with a degree in History and Religion. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Joanna, since July of 2017. He is an avid reader who loves a good conversation on faith, justice, and education. Dan has a heart for young people and is passionate about helping to bring up the next generation of Christ-followers.

Joanna is now married to Dan, whom she met in youth group in NY, and they live in North Quincy.
