Our Pastor

Chris Whorton

God has been so gracious to me. First and foremost, God has given His Son Jesus to die in my place for my sins that I would be forgiven and become his child. Second, He has blessed me with an amazing wife for over 23 years, Corrie, and has given us 7 wonderful children to love and raise for Him. Third, God has called me to serve Him in pastoral ministry for more than 17 years, and we especially praise Him for leading us to serve here at HBC in Gravette, Arkansas. I welcome any questions you may have and look forward to meeting you!


Associate Pastor

Mitchell Yost

God is great and gracious, and the Yosts strive, though imperfectly, to make much our great and gracious King. I am ever thankful for the life that I get to lead as a husband, father and pastor. Jesus saved me from the depths of my sin, and I seek to humbly serve him with gratitude in all that I do as a teacher and shepherd of Christ's church.

Sarah and I met in college and have been married for six years. Our two children, Judah (4) and Ellie (2) are precious gifts from the Lord and we love them. I have been blessed to have served Christ in ministry for nearly ten years, while coming to Heritage in May 2022. I am here and available to serve you as we seek to follow Christ together!
