Dan M. Downing - Senior Pastor
Pastor Dan has been in full-time, Christian ministry since 1978 and has been our senior pastor since 1984. He loves preaching/teaching God’s Word, counseling, and shepherding the “flock” God has given him here at Heath Church. Leading a new soul to Christ and/or encouraging a Christian in his walk with God are a couple of his greatest joys.
Also, very high on that “Joys List” is his family! “Home & Family” are some of Pastor Dan’s favorite preaching topics because they are also some of his favorite “living” topics! The love of his life (since 1978) is wife and parsonage queen, Marilyn. Their 4 grown children, (Dana, Danelle, Daniel, & DeLinda) are married to 4 great children-in-love, (David, Tom, Emily, & Mike) - and from those happy unions Pastor Dan & Marilyn have been presented with 14 absolutely-amazing grandchildren who “keep the parsonage rockin’!”
Bluegrass & Southern Gospel Music are special loves of Pastor Dan, as well.
If you’re looking for a warm & friendly, Bible-believing church-home, Pastor Dan says, “Come and see us. We’d LOVE to meet you!”

Daniel "Bumpy" Downing - Youth Pastor
Who I Am
I am exceedingly blessed to have been raised in a family rich in Christian heritage and culture. Both my grandfather and father have spent their entire adult careers in full-time Christian ministry. In addition to these blessings, God has favored me with a godly wife, Emily, who dedicates herself completely to creating a Christian atmosphere in which to raise our 4 awesome children - Lyla, Camden, Briggs, and Rhett.
What I'm Doing
My primary role here at Heath Church is to serve as the pastor of HeathYouth Ministries which includes middle school and high school age kids. I also enjoy playing drums and guitar in our church worship band. I'm also involved in organizing many of our HeathYoungAdult activities, as well.
