Our Staff & Church Officers

Our Pastor

Two Rock Valley Church

The Rev, Dr. Cornelia Cyss-Carter has been our pastor since May 2006. Cornelia is a native of Northern Germany and has lived and studied in both Germany and the United States. She earned her Master of Divinity from San Francisco Theological Seminary and her Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. Prior to her call to Two Rock and Tomales Presbyterian Churches, she was Coordinator of Older Adult Ministries at First Presbyterian Church in San Anselmo and Interim Associate Pastor for Christian Nurture and Congregational Care at Community Presbyterian Church in Vallejo. She has also taught classes at the Graduate Theological Union.

Pastor Cornelia delights in being partners in Christ’s service with the historic congregation at Two Rock. She brings to her ministry a passion for faithful and joyful worship and a deep commitment to nurture faith in others; she has a great love for people and for fostering caring relationships; and she strives to strengthening the congregation’s call to be servants of Jesus Christ and to reach out to neighbors within the Two Rock community and beyond.

Pastor Cornelia is supported by a small staff and an active group of church officers.
