Deacon Cliff Syner - Pastoral Intern
A Physician Assistant and prior combat medic, Deacon Cliff realized during clinical practice the spiritual deficit of our communities and the need for deeper discipleship. Through prayer and Catechism, God called Cliff to shepherd His flock. Confident in this calling to the priesthood, their family sold their farm in Tennessee and moved to Wisconsin, where Deacon Cliff entered nearby Nashotah House Theological Seminary to be formed in the Anglican way of following Christ. Cliff is the father of 3 teenagers and husband to the love of his life, Lisa. As one of our pastoral interns, Cliff leads the youth program at St. Michael's, including Sunday and midweek youth meetings for middle school and high school.
