Pastors & Staff

 
The pastors and staff at Heritage are dedicated to equipping the saints for the ministry as described in Ephesians 4. We understand that each has been given different gifts and abilities for the building up of the body of Christ and the proclamation of the gospel locally and around the world. 
 
We are not perfect but strive to honor God with our lives and our positions at Heritage. If you have questions or desire to meet with someone on staff, please contact us today!
