Lindsei grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and spent most of her adult years in Sao Paulo. Her favorite place to be is wherever is warmer!
She has a Licentiate in Theological and Intercultural Studies from Word of Life Missionary Institute (in the Amazon!!) and a BA in Occupational Therapy from the University of Sao Paulo, both in Brazil. Over the last ten years, she has served in ministry as a Children’s Associate and worked as a Mental Health practitioner. Her passion for languages led her to The Gospel Coalition’s Portuguese Translation Team, and after a coalition was formed in Brazil in 2018, she gladly handed the leadership over to the local team.
Her connection with Stone Hill goes back to the partnership between her home church in Brazil and Westerly in 2009, followed by two years living and serving our children’s ministry here during her student exchange years (2011-13). She loved being mentored by our former Children’s Director and serving alongside her. It’s no surprise she loves our church and is excited to see where God leads Stone Hill Kids.
At Stone Hill, Lindsei oversees all programs for children from birth to 5th grade, including Sunday School, Children’s Church, Awana, and Camp! She believes parents are called to be the primary disciple makers in their families and partners with them to foster their children’s faith in action.
She's happily married to David Luciano, whom she met at Abide, the church's Young Adult group.
