Youth Director

Cheryl Lentner

  Send Email  •  (734)925-0501

Cheryl is married to Herb Lentner, and they have three adult sons: Chandos – 27, Garrett – 24, and Dylan – 23.  She is also blessed with a sweet granddaughter, Hannah, who is 3-1/2 years old. 

Cheryl retired from United Airlines in 2016 after 25 years of service in Sales and Customer Care.  She has a BSED in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.

Why did Cheryl decide to become the Youth Director here at Faith?  After retirement from the airlines, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do.  She prayed about an opportunity to serve God and her community for some time.  When she heard about the position at Faith, she decided to apply…and the rest is history!

Cheryl is committed to follow the advice of a very wise man who said, “Do all the good you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can…” (John Wesley)  and wants to help our children do the same!
