Unfortunately, stats show that up to 90% of men who begin their career as pastors do not finish. Many factors contribute to this sad statistic, one of which is that pastors often grow isolated and over-burdened in ministry. Our approach is different. We have multiple pastors, each of whom oversees different areas of church ministry (e.g., Acts 14:23, Titus 1:5, James 5:14). We also have a full-time ministry staff who lead various church ministries and are an integral part of the overall team (Eccl 4:12). 
Practically, our structure means our pastors share the pulpit more than in many churches. Our approach to preaching highlights the importance of the Word of God over the man in the pulpit.  It also  gives each pastor the ability to invest more deeply in the people and ministries of the church than would otherwise be possible. We are blessed to have a great team at Heritage, and we invite you to check out the bios below to get to know each member.  Feel free to contact any of us at any time!

Greg Cash

Minister of Media

Greg was born and raised in Southern California. He moved to Arizona and worked as a police officer where he met his wife Tami.  God began to pull Greg’s heart away from law enforcement and toward pastoral ministry work. Greg moved back to Southern California and went to California Baptist University and began working as a full-time pastor. After graduating, Greg and his family moved to Kentucky to attend The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. At seminary God intersected Greg's life with professional film and called him as a full-time storyteller as a videographer. Greg has traveled all over the world shooting film and telling stories, including his most recent work as a full-time media missionary in Jerusalem, Israel.

Greg joined the staff at Heritage in January, 2022 and has an unrelenting passion for telling God’s stories. His favorite Scripture verse is Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and give himself for me.”
