2018 Fall Retreat Worship Leaders B. Isaac Heath & Julie Heath (Portage Lake)

Julie and Isaac Heath have been married for just over 13 years and have been making music together for longer than that. They met in Myrtle Beach, SC, where they taught teenagers how to come to God through music and art. Their love for God, music, and art drives their passion for leading worship and helping others lay aside their daily worries to chase after God’s face. Julie and Isaac have recently released an album of re-imagined hymns which they hope will help people see past the nostalgia that often accompanies hymnody, and revisit in a fresh new way the poetry and theology found in the hymnbook. Isaac currently serves as the worship leader at Faith Covenant Church in Westerville, Ohio.

  • The Aldersgate Project – This collection of re-imagined hymns strips away the nostalgia of our pasts, and allows us to focus on the lyrical content in a new and fresh way.
