Lead Team

Steve Abel

Steve Abel Rock Island Campus Pastor

Steve is a marathon runner with three boys, Lincoln, Hudson, and Lennox. His wife, Amber, and he are sci-fi and fantasy nerds. He loves playing music, connecting with people, and sunshine. When he was ten he dreamed of being a jazz Musician or in a pit orchestra for an Andrew Lloyd Webber Opera.

Paul Anderson

Paul Anderson Operations Pastor

Paul, his wife Darci and three kids (Mia, Max, and Mari) are life-long Quad Cities residents and have been blessed to be a part of the Heritage family since 1996. On Friday nights, Paul can be found in the kitchen whipping up just about anything you can imagine. His personal motto is work hard, love everyone, be nice and don’t do anything stupid.

Justin Barnes

Justin Barnes Bettendorf Campus Pastor

Justin is passionate about helping all people experience the fullness of life that Jesus offers. He’s quick to laugh, is committed to infusing fun into every environment and is uniquely created for stability in high winds. Justin is peeved by grass clippings in the road. His greatest privilege is to be Jessie’s husband and Maddox and Ava’s dad.

David Dryer

David Dryer HR & Finance Director

Dave is a graduate of Hope College with a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting. Dave is married to Joyce. He loves watching wildlife and also plays the piano. His favorite cartoon character is Bugs Bunny.

Jeremiah Gómez

Jeremiah Gómez Network Discipleship & Interim Vida Nueva Campus Pastor

Jeremiah gets to be Sarah's husband and Jubilee & Zechariah's dad. He has a wealth of experience in ministry and leadership investments across North America. Jeremiah is known around Heritage as "The words guy." He probably has at least 4 different ways of improving this sentence and believes that Sarcasm should be included as the "6th love language."

Brandon Shupp

Brandon Shupp Worship & Creative Arts Pastor

Brandon is a hockey player trapped in a guitarist's body. That may be where all that energy comes from. In any case, he loves his wife, Jennifer and two boys, Grant & Jackson. His favorite time of the week is gathering in worship together. His hobbies include quoting Homer Simpson and binge-watching Netflix.
