This is the Heintz Family Mission Statement, something instilled within him and his family. Pastor Brad's vision, as Founder of the Living Word Church, is to create a new faith community in Bay Area Houston, striving to grow people, transform households and reach neighbors with the Living Word of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
The son of a Pastor, Pastor Brad Heintz was born in Cambridge, England in 1966. He grew up in Michigan, and in 1988 graduated from Concordia College in Ann Arbor, earning his BA degree. He attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO., graduating in 1992 with his Masters of Divinity. He also participated in an overseas study program in London, England and Seoul, Korea.
