Heather Weber, our lead pastor, was on staff as an associate pastor at LIFEchurch in North Liberty/Coralville for eight years and is an ordained minister. She, her husband and daughters, and a group of friends launched CityChurch in downtown Iowa City in September of 2016, and she's thrilled to be pastoring in this season of brand-new church life. Heather attended the University of Iowa and got her B.A. in English and religion before receiving an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the Rainier Writing Workshop, after which she published Dear Boy,: An Epistolary Memoir. She loves books, long walks, organic vegetables, herbal tinctures, and refinishing furniture in unexpected ways. She's married to Mark, and her favorite parenting activity is reading aloud to her three daughters on winter nights (Narnia, anyone?). She thrives on deep friendships (necessary as water), and she feels she’s in exactly the right place when she's helping others to see God's activity in their lives and in the world around them.
