Heidi Greider, Director of Christian Education

Heidi is a native Seattleite with a degree in Christian Education from Seattle Pacific University.  In 1987 she transplanted to Pasadena, CA to get both her M.Div. and Mrs. (when she met and married her fellow student and lifelong ministry partner, Hallack Greider).  Heidi and Hallack have 3 children:  Hannah, Bekah, Ben and have served in 14 congregations both as a team and separately.  Following graduation from Fuller, they moved to Anchorage, AK and in 1997 moved back to the Seattle area to raise their children close to their families.  Heidi has more than 30 years serving families in churches and has recently added chaplain to her list of abilities.  Chaplaincy became a goal after caring for her parents the last couple years of their lives.  Heidi sees caring for our children and elderly as complimentary ministries to the (oftentimes) vulnerable members of our culture.
