Cleddie & Gaynell Keith - Senior Pastors
Having served in a wide range of ministries, Pastor Cleddie Keith shares from his experiences of life which makes him a relevant communicator to the hour in which we live. His world travels in conferences, crusades, and church planting was born out of a passion for souls that God gave him as a young convert in the early 60’s. Pastor Keith is a man who is consumed with a passion for revival. Under his leadership, several ministries have been birthed around the world. Since 1994, weekly river meetings and conferences have touched thousands of hungry hearts throughout the United States. The meetings have attracted many from all over the world. He is widely known as a “Pastor to Pastors”. Many have entered discouraged but have left refreshed and renewed, returning to their home churches where, at many times, their own revivals start to breakout. Pastor Keith and his wife Gaynell serves as the Senior Pastors of Heritage Fellowship. Gaynell is a vital asset to the Women’s Ministries of the church.

Rene & Barb Rocha - Spanish PastorsThere are times when we ask ourselves, Why do we do this? What drives us to tell all these people about the great love, mercy, and forgiveness of God? The answer is simple; it is a response to the same love, mercy, and forgiveness we have received from God. It is our desire to tell the Hispanics about God. We want to see people of every race and nationality fall in love with Him and be set free. Matthew 28:19 states: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." This ministry touches the heart of God by touching the hearts of the Hispanic people and serving them in practical ways.
