Network Lead Pastor
Brent Heishman

I grew up in Northeast Ohio and attended and graduated from Bedford High School along with my wife Lisa. 
I married Lisa and we moved to Florida where I attended Southeastern University in Lakeland. While in Florida, 
I finished a Bachelors Degree and served in 3 churches. In 1993, I became Lead Pastor of a church in Macon, Ga. While serving in Macon, our two children Brent and AnaLise were born. In 2001, we moved closer to home and I became the Lead Pastor of Victory Assembly in Newcomerstown. Serving the people of the church and the people of the community has been the joy of our lives. In December of 2013, I finished a Masters Degree in Church Leadership and have received certifications in personal coaching, congregational coaching, and church consultation.

Lisa and I feel we have been called to the Southeast area of Ohio to be missionaries as well as pastors. Presently we are raising up leaders and preparing to launch a new church in Coshocton County because we sense the activity of God in this region. We are also, serving as Lead Pastors for our Bridgeport Campus, 
Family Life Ministry Center.  We have a vision to plant multiple churches in the Tuscarawas Valley and 
the Ohio Valley. We believe that an authentic spirit empowered expression of the Body of Christ is 
LIFE and HOPE to the people of Southeast Ohio. I love the Bride of Christ! I love God's people! And we are committed to helping her become a beautiful, effective, and powerful representation of Jesus and His Kingdom.
