Leadership Team

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!”

Finn Clay- Youth Pastor

Hello everyone! My name is Finn Clay. I was born and raised in Rutherford County, NC. I have served in many different ministry formats for the better part of 6 years. I absolutely love investing in and getting to know people. My beautiful wife, Jessie, and I got married in October 2018. We are very pleased to be serving the Heath Church community! Youth ministry has changed my life. I was very involved in youth growing up and that has led to a deeply rooted passion for serving teenagers and helping them to grow in their relationship with Christ. My other interests include Star Wars, playing drums and singing in worship and rock bands, playing board games, video games, travel, and having great conversations.
