Jim and Sue have been married since 1965 having met at the age of 5.  They have 2 adult children – Todd who lives in South Dakota and Talanda who lives in Azle. They have 4 grandchildren.  Their grandchildren Suzy and Mason Lewis currently live with them and are very active in the Heritage Student Ministry.

One of our favorite Bible verses is I John 5:13 “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”

Our hope and vision for Heritage is that we will all live and celebrate the fact that that we have already won the Victory!  And that others will be attracted to living a life in relationship with God our Father because they see Jesus living in us.
