Heather has been part of the Trinity Beamsville family since May 2015, and loves to call this her second home. While she and her family live in Burlington, Niagara has been sacred space for a lifetime, spending her childhood and youth in Port Colborne, and still having extended family throughout the peninsula. There have been some years away – for university years, then a brief career in teaching before seminary, and then ministry pre-Beamsville, in Oxford County, Halton, and Hamilton – but the road to this part of the province has always felt most familiar and so full of promise.
Heather is passionate about many things, but finds greatest joy in watching God’s Love unfold and transform individual lives. She believes in (and preaches ad nauseum?) about the power of community, and never tires of watching Jesus-followers share hope by sharing life together.
This ministry life is not possible without extraordinary support from many others, and in that wide circle Heather relies most of all on the patience and care of her husband Michael (married 1996), and their two children, Eric and Abbey. Family life revolves around all things musical, particularly the Burlington Teen Tour Band, travelling the province and beyond as musicians and chaperones. Sacred time is also found in the garden, in a book, baking gluten-free banana bread, on retreat to Pelee Island, and generally anywhere that can involve a canoe, or birding, or a blessed combination of the above.
