DJ Pesata is our Middle School Coordinator. Soon after coming to Heartland, DJ began volunteering in our high school ministry. God used those experiences to grow DJ’s passion and gift for sharing Jesus with youth. He now focuses on walking alongside our middle school students as they learn to find, follow, and share the love of Christ.
DJ has lived in the Medina area his whole life. He and his wife, Ashley, have four kids, with twins on the way! DJ is dedicated to being a devoted husband, to loving his children well, and to discipling as many students as possible for the glory of God. His favorite bible verse is John 8:12, which says: “When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’”
