Lonnie & Cindy Dufty

Lonnie and Cindy Dufty serve in cooperation with Cindy’s home church (Brookdale Covenant), Transform Minnesota (Minnesota branch of the National Association of Evangelicals) and in the summer, Bethel University’s Intercultural Studies Program. In their usually separate but sometimes joint roles they minister to four special groups: children from stressed North Minneapolis homes, Somali refugees seeking English literacy training, convicted felons completing the final stage of prison sentences at Damascus Way Reentry Center (Golden Valley facility) and for a few weeks each summer, Japanese university students doing studies at Bethel University. Over the past two years Lonnie has also helped repurpose the former parsonage of Brookdale Covenant Church into “Brookdale House,” a residence for formerly incarcerated men whose lives have been transformed by an experience with Jesus and who wish to live for a time in Christian community and sobriety with other believing men.
