Every month, we want to profile a church leader just like you. This month, we’re featuring Heather Matarazzo.

Heather has been the Director of Family Ministries at Rolling Plains UMC in Zanesville, Ohio for the last six years.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

I love equipping families with resources that can actually help them.

What are some challenges you face at your church?

We live in a very rural part of Ohio, so our community deals with a lot of poverty.

How has MarriedPeople changed how your church works with married couples?

This is actually the first time we have had a marriage ministry at our church. So it’s helped us get started.

What’s one helpful tip you’d like to share with other church leaders?

Find those people who have circles of influence in your church and get them on board even if it is just to attend the events.
