Connections Pastor Grant Heckman joined the staff of Chicago First Church of the Nazarene in 2014. Grant was born in the greatest city on earth, Pittsburgh, and has been married to Amy since 2006. The Heckmans have two children, Micah and Audrey.
Before coming to C1, Pastor Grant served as the Administrative Pastor at Crossroads Church of the Nazarene in Ellicott City, MD. He holds a B.A. in Religion from Mount Vernon Nazarene University and an M.S. in Church Management from Villanova University. He loves being with his family, playing fetch with their dog, Aspen, watching and playing sports - cheering, of course, for all Pittsburgh sports teams (though he has loved the Chicago Bulls from a young age).
Speaking about his ministry at C1, Grant says, "God has given me a great passion for seeing people get connected to others and to grow in their relationship with God. There’s nothing better than seeing people take their next step in Christ!"
