  • Cindy Enzor

    Music Director

    Cindy has served as Music/Worship Director at TEFC since 2001.  She loves to plan weekly services, rehearsing the Praise Teams, as well as leading Sunday morning worship.  Cindy began her music career teaching music in public schools after receiving a Bachelor's degree from Eastern Illinois University.  Then she felt God calling her to music ministry in 1985.  She received her Master's degree in 1987 from Southern Methodist University and has been serving in music ministry since then. 

    Cindy also stays busy teaching piano and voice lessons in her home studio.  She is a professional accompanist for the local public schools.  When that isn't keeping her busy, she is spoiling her grandkids or fixing delicious meals.  Her favorite hobbies include card making, reading, cooking and baking and rooting for her favorite team, the Chicago Cubs.

    Cindy's favorite book of the Bible is the Psalms.  "It is full of music!"  One favorite passage is Psalm 25:4-5, "Show me your ways Lord, teach me your paths.  Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long."  She uses Psalm 27:1 as her life verse.  "The Lord is my light and my salvation -- whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life -- of whom shall I be afraid?"  Cindy feels very blessed to be able to serve God through music.

  • Dotti Taylor

    Administrative Assistant

    Dotti  left a brief "early retirement" in 2003 to work as our Administrative Assistant, a decision she has never regretted.  She remembers as a child watching an office receptionist and thinking that would be a great job, and her high school classes in office skills reinforced those thoughts.  It is no surprise then that, rather than pursuing a college education, shortly after graduating from Greenville High School, she began her secretarial career, with her first job as a stenographer for the FBI.

    She and her husband, Jerry, have been married since 1988 and are the parents of five children, and grandparents of ten..

    Dotti passionately cheers for the St. Louis Cardinals, Fighting Illini, and Chicago Bulls.  Her favorite pastimes include gardening, cooking, adult coloring books, thrift store shopping, and taking day trips with Jerry.  She loves music of all genres, and Mac Powell of Third Day is her favorite singer. Despite her fear of water and crossing bridges, her favorite places to visit are covered bridges, waterfalls and the beach.

    Dotti's favorite Bible verse is Deuteronomy 30:20  " the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.  For the LORD is your life".
