Heather graduated Brewton-Parker College in 2016. While she was a student, she attended Connection Church on and off. In 2018 she moved to Pennsylvania to work with a church plant in downtown Pittsburgh. In the fall of 2020 she moved back to Mt. Vernon, Georgia to work at Brewton-Parker. She began going to a Connect Group and later joined the Connection Church family.
During her time in Pittsburgh, it became evident that God had placed a burden on her heart for those who had little or no access to the Gospel. Going to a church, and being around people who did not grow up in the “bible belt”, opened her eyes to how little the Gospel was actually being shared. Upon coming back to Connection Church, she began serving on the production team. It has become evident in her time back in Mt. Vernon/Vidalia, that God has deepened the burden in her heart for people with no access to the Gospel. Heather will join Bo and Lauren Ryals as they embark on the adventure of becoming overseas missionaries. She beyond excited to see what God is going to do as He sends them out to harvest His field. She is looking forward to partnering with you!
