Leadership

“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ” –Eph 4:11-12 (NASB).

PASTOR STEVE WARD

Steve and his wife Jaime have four children, Maddy, Gideon, Andrew and Lydia. In February 2000, Steve was ordained and set apart for the ministry of the Gospel at Heritage.  Prior to that, he served as an interim preacher at Calvary Baptist Church in Lamar, Missouri for two years.  Serving for over 15 years, Steve’s desire is to see the power of union with Christ through faith in the Gospel continue to transform the lives of the members of Heritage.

Steve attended Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and studied Biblical Greek under Dr. Alan Tomlinson.  In additional to his pastoral responsibilities, he is involved in several youth athletic and evangelistic outreach programs including being a commissioner, coach and referee for the Upward Basketball ministry.  He is bi-vocational and works for Terracon Consultants as the Manager of IT Solutions, developing tools for environmental compliance.

Jaime homeschools their children and is an active member of the homeschool community in Kansas City.  Maddy and Lydia dance for the Heart of America Dance Centre’s Home School Dance Program, and Gideon plays soccer for the KC East Lion Home School soccer team.
