About Heather :
As the daughter of an American Baptist pastor, Heather has been in and around church all her life. Despite the church’s imperfections, it is among the gathered people of God that she consistently finds practice and hope that lead to abundant life.

She has served a rural bi-vocational church, two small urban congregations as interim pastor and a large, suburban church as senior pastor. She and her husband, Peter Stover, an environmental engineer, also spent two years teaching English in the People’s Republic of China through American Baptist Churches USA.
