Hi, I'm Heather.

Heather joined Team PCC in 2021 as the Marriage & Parenting Ministry Assistant. Her personal mission statement is “to serve God by serving others”, and she gets true fulfillment knowing that she has helped others. Heather was born and raised in a small town in southern Mississippi as part of a big family (nine aunts/uncles and 20+ first cousins). She and her husband, a Fort Wayne native, have lived many places—including Suffolk, England for a few years— and in 2018, they returned to Fort Wayne to put down roots. In her free time, Heather enjoys drawing, writing, doodling, or anything that helps her express her creativity.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be an architect or a fashion designer

A silly thing that creeps you out:

I am terrified of butterflies

TV shows or movies you’re watching?

WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and I’m excited to watch Loki!

Highlight of the past year:

Coming to Pathway has been the biggest highlight for my family and me. We have moved quite a bit, and we’ve attended many churches in search of a place to call home. I was never the popular kid in school or the person most people found interesting enough to spark a conversation with, but then we stepped foot into Pathway and it felt like this was the place God had for us all along. Everyone has been so loving and welcoming. It feels like home away from my eternal home. Those family and friends I have been searching for what seems my entire life just came flooding in. My husband and I believe we have finally found our tribe, and we’re going to hold onto them as long as God allows.
