Heidi Jarrett

Children's Pastor

When not downing a can of Coke Zero, doing cartwheel double back flips at the gymnastics club or watching football with her husband, Paul, Heidi is enjoying the challenge of growing our Kids@Calvary ministry.

Heidi graduated from Eastern Pentecostal Bible College with a degree in youth ministry, but quickly discovered a love for children’s ministry.

After serving on staff in churches in Simcoe, Wallaceburg and London, Heidi and Paul helped plant a church in Medicine Hat, Alberta. After spending 7 years in “THE HAT” ministering to kids and junior highs, she moved on to First Assembly Calgary, followed by Stoney Creek, Ontario where she first worked under the leadership of Pastor Jeff Johnston.

Born and raised in “farmsville”, Ontario, Heidi doesn’t mind rolling up her sleeves, getting her hands dirty and working hard. She loves a good challenge – ask her how she won $20 picking tomatoes! In a ministry setting, this is no different. Her creative approach to sharing the message of Jesus is exciting and surprising for kids of all ages!
