God is opening doors for us to join Him on His mission in Southwest Medina!
Heartland isn’t a perfect church, but it has done a great job of creating a welcoming atmosphere, making Jesus the “main thing”, striving to make disciples, and remaining very open and attentive to what God is doing in our community. We want to bring that same DNA and our mission to help people Find and Follow Jesus and to equip them to Share His love with the world to Southwest Medina and the world. There are still many people in Medina who do not know Jesus, that are not experiencing the joy, hope, love, peace, and life that can only be found in a relationship with Him.
We are planting this church so that we can continue to engage people in the process of finding Jesus, and we are stepping out in faith that God will lead us into this new adventure every step of the way. One of the core beliefs at Heartland is that the “good news” really is good news. God designed humanity to live and thrive in a relationship with Him forever. God created humanity out the love that exists at the core of who He is, and He made us in His image. He called His creation good, and incredibly he invited us to rule and reign with Him. Although Adam and Eve and all people since have rejected God and chosen their own way over His way, He made a way through His Son Jesus to restore the loving relationship between God and His creatures that was broken by sin. Following Jesus isn’t about a list of rules, it’s about discovering that the greatest gift any person could find is a relationship with a good and perfect God who loves them. We feel called to present this good news to any and all that may have given up on church but not on God.
Meet Our Heartland Williams Team
1.) What name/nickname do you prefer to be called?
While there are still a few people who call me Andrew, I prefer to be called Drew (the name I officially adopted on the first day of school in 9th grade). I never go by Andy.
2.) If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be?
Campus Pastor at Heartland Williams + Friend of Family Ministry Staff + Official Geese Prevention Specialist + Medina County Fair Parking Emeritus.
3.) What is your favorite verse from The Bible?
I’m not sure I truly have a “favorite verse”. One of my favorite passages is John 15:1-17, where Jesus describe himself as a vine and His followers as branches. I love the picture this passage paints of what it looks like to abide in Christ, to stay connected to Him daily, and the way God brings about fruitfulness through obedient lives centered in a loving relationship with God.
4.) What volunteering or passion projects do you do outside of work?
I love to play basketball, disc golf, spike ball, tennis, and several other sports. I especially enjoy coaching, serving, or mentoring students through relationships created by sports. I love to learn and frequently read about topics related to American and world history, sports, and life with Jesus. I also am passionate about caring for the birds who choose to make frequent stops in my front and backyard.
5.) What is your favorite cereal?
My favorite cereal is undoubtedly Reese’s Puffs, but since I want to live long and prosper my standard cereal has become Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds.
6.) Which way does your toilet paper hang on the wall – over or under?
Over. That being said, I’m not passionate about this enough to change the direction when someone else has hung it the opposite way.
7.) What are three things still left on your bucket list?
I’m not the biggest dreamer in the world, and I certainly don’t have a bucket list. Three things I’m always in pursuit of are the perfect cup of coffee, a hole in one in disc golf, and growth in the process of becoming a more loving husband.
