About Mary Cernik Christiansen

Mary Cernik Christiansen

Office Coordinator

As Office Coordinator, I provide administrative assistance to the staff that supports their ministries. I love being able to help others, in particular the Senior Adult Ministries. In addition to the people, I am grateful for hearing the message of God’s grace reinforced, which is humbling and hope-filled. Prior to working at Webster Gardens, I was Office Director at Kirkwood United Methodist Church for six years. I was also a supervisor for 13 years with State Farm Insurance, where I worked in a regional office in Tulsa, Oklahoma and at the Corporate Headquarters in Bloomington, Illinois. In the mid ‘80s, I was a trainer for a computer company in Wichita, Kansas. I received my Bachelor of Communications from St. Louis University.

In November 2019, Pastor Christiansen and I were blessed through our marriage to each other. In addition to my new family with him, I also have two brothers out-of-state with families and a sister who lives locally. Outside of the church, I enjoy cooking, gardening, and discovering old cookbooks at garage and estate sales.
