Come As You Are

Jesus said "Come", and all of us come to Jesus just as we are. He loved us from the start, and His love encourages us to follow wherever He leads! Come join us in getting to know our Savior.

Answering Life’s Hard Questions

New Heritage Pastors

Gordon & Teresa Walsh
Gordon & Teresa Walsh, Senior Pastors. Teresa and I would like to first thank you for visiting our web page and we look forward to seeing you soon at New Heritage Church. I served in the United States Army for over 24 years, serving with the 82nd Airborne and Special Forces (Green Berets).


God called me to ministry in December of 2010 and at that moment I began a new mission, a mission to utilize the training and experience I received in Special Forces and bring it to the church. Teresa and I gladly accept the challenge God has placed in our life and all we ask of you is to "Come as you are".

Joseph Garcia
Joseph Garcia, Associate Pastor. Being raised in a military family, I moved around quite a bit. However, I mainly lived in California most of my life, where I was born. I was drawn to Jesus for as long as I can recall, having invited him into my heart as a young child.


When I was truly willing to commit, I threw myself into study and was mentored by an accomplished theologian. I also spent several years as a student with William Carey International University, geared towards mission work. My first "mission" was actually at Jubilee Youth Ranch, where I lived and worked with at-risk youth. I found New Heritage after two years of recovering from serious bone marrow cancer treatment. I am now blessed to have an opportunity to share what I believe is the heart of God towards all.

Steven Lodahl
Steven Lodahl, Worship Leader. I was born in Southern California but I was raised in the Pacific Northwest. At a young age we moved up to Pasco WA and lived with my grandparents. My Grandfather was a pastor at Pasco Nazerene Church at the time, so I was raised in a strong christian home.


When I graduated high school I moved up to Spokane WA where I began work in ministry, after years of serving in my youth group at South Hills Church. Ive always been drawn to serving others and working for the kingdom. God blessed me with a passion for worship ministry and I'm so thankful for the opportunity to serve now at New Heritage Church.

Katherine Di Biase, Children's Director. I have been a Christian since I was seven years old, but I had a rough time growing up. Although I had faith, I lacked a firm relationship and foundation with Jesus. At about 20, I started planting myself in the word, and out of that came the blessings of my husband and two children.


Going through all of that, God gave me the conviction that working with the children was to prepare them: How to make it through rough times, handling success and failure, and how to stay grounded in all things. As Children's Director, I work to lay a foundation and prepare the children as if they don't get any other mentoring in their lives outside of church! My goal is to teach them to stay firm in their faith, and to live with the character that Jesus would like them to. The children are our next generation of leaders. Don't underestimate the children that come out of our church!


Pastor Gordon's vision is for the church to be a "gathering place" where the community can come together for events, classes, games, etc. Jesus did not intend for the church to isolate itself, but to be a light, show love, and to be there for one another. God has a special place for each person in his family, so come as you are and let Him do the rest.
