Heath is responsible for website and social media (Facebook, etc) and for sound/tech ministries.  He also helps with our Wednesday night bus ministry and youth.  Heath will also preach during the year.  Heath’s job description will be somewhat flexible since he comes with many talents and abilities.  What a help and blessing he is going to be as we continue to grow and build new areas of ministry.
