Heather Terris

Associate Pastor of Worship
Heather Terris joined the team at Albright Church as the Associate Pastor of Worship in January 2024. Although born and raised in southwestern Ontario, Heather spent over a decade living, studying, and serving in Saskatchewan to prepare her for winter in Winnipeg. Heather’s passion for the church was passed down to her from her parents and grandparents. As she has served over the years, first as a volunteer and later in formal ministry, that passion has only continued to grow. She is a sister to three, an aunt to eight, and she loves any time she gets to spend with her family who are spread across Canada from coast to coast.
As the Associate Pastor of Worship, Heather’s role involves working alongside our Lead Pastor and many members of the Albright family to shape times and places of worship week to week and season to season. Heather is passionate about equipping and encouraging God’s people to ever-increasing responsiveness to his Word and the movement of the Holy Spirit. She loves discerning with others what the Lord is saying to his people and exploring creative ways to invite more holistic participation in life with Jesus and his church.
