The Ridge is excited to announce our new Adult Ministries Director, Will Herron.

Will was born to missionary parents and raised in a small town on the east coast of N Ireland. After graduating with a theology degree from Queens University Belfast, Will became a singer, song writer and guitarist in the band Rend Collective. After three years on the road with the band, Will accepted a worship pastor position at Holy Trinity Church in McLean, VA. There he, his wife Bridget (native Iowan!) and their three children Joel (7), Ellie (5) and Jonah (1½yrs) have lived for the past seven years.

Over the past couple of years Will has felt a shift vocationally where the Lord was moving him from being primarily involved in worship ministry, to new avenues of serving the church in teaching, discipleship, and pastoral care. Coinciding with that, his family felt increasingly more and more the absence of their Iowa based family.

From Will…

“When The Ridge approached us about the possibility of applying for this position, we sensed not only God’s design in it but also His calling. We feel so blessed and loved by the Lord that he would entrust us with this privilege of ministering at The Ridge whilst also bringing us back to Iowa. We are so excited to see all that the Lord is going to do in this new season!”

Will will begin his new role May 1st remotely and will join us onsite in June.

Welcome Will, Bridget, Joel, Ellie & Jonah!
