Pastor John Heritage
Pastor John came to the United States from Canada in 1985 to attend the University of Mary (then Mary College) here in Bismarck. After graduating with a BSc. in Music Education, instead of leaving back to Canada he decided to stay and marry the wonderful girl he had met in college: Rayleen. Together they have stayed in the Bismarck/Mandan area, celebrating the birth of their daughter Julia in 1996. Currently, Pastor John works full-time at the local Barnes & Noble while taking ministerial classes towards ordination. He has been a licensed minister in the Wesleyan Church for a number of years, working part-time in the church office, assisting in leading music, working the sound booth, advising Pastor Keith in computer, sound, and technological areas, and the occasional preaching.
