Along with her administrator role, Heather also enjoys serving with BCC's youth as a high school small group leader.

Ministry close to your heart?
Obviously, I would have to say our counseling ministry. There is nothing more rewarding or sanctifying then coming alongside people as the Lord works in their lives; turning trials into all joy. Yet the process of “coming alongside people” in one another-ing is a vital part of every ministry and purpose at Bethany Community Church.

Finish this sentence: If I have a free afternoon, I can probably be found
Depends totally on the season. If it's spring or summer, I’ll be outside on a run or hanging out by a pool. I’m all outdoors. If it's winter, a good cup of coffee, and even better with a book, a warm blanket and a fireplace.

What is a Scripture verse that is meaningful to you?
I would have to say Galatians 2:20 has been my long-term one. It reminds me so often, how in and of myself I can do nothing, but it's Christ who lives in me.
