Pastor Heidi began her ministry with St. Andrew in July 2019. She grew up in the town of Palmerton, PA and has served local churches in the Eastern PA Conference of the U.M. Church since 1984.

She shared her talents and gifts first as a Youth Director/Christian Education Director, and then in 1992 was ordained a minister. Her schooling includes a B.A. in English Literature & Youth Ministry from Eastern University and a MDiv degree from Duke University.

Pastor Heidi enjoys using the creative arts in her preaching, teaching, and pastoral care with members. She likes to incorporate storytelling, drama, and humor as she inspires and equips laity for mission and ministry.

In her free time, she relishes sports - watching Phillies baseball, Eagles football and Duke basketball. She is an avid reader; she enjoys visiting her extended family members, as well as gathering with friends for movies, plays, and walks in our National Parks. She is excited to be leading and coaching the St. Andrew team!
