Ladies Conference - "Rejoice in the Lord" (Philippians 4:4)

June 16-17, 2023

Susan Heck

Women's Speaker: Susan Heck

Susan Heck was married for 46 years to her beloved husband, Doug Heck, until the Lord took him to glory in August 2021. Susan has been involved in Women’s Ministries for about 40 years. She is also a certified counselor with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors and the author of the With the Master Bible study series. Susan’s teaching ministry is an outgrowth of her memorization work on the Bible. She has memorized the entire New Testament and is now journeying her way through more of the Old Testament. To God be the glory! Susan has two grown children and seven grandchildren. Because of the enthusiastic ladies who attend the Bible Studies that Susan teaches, and because of the life changes, Susan has been invited to speak to a number of ladies groups, both nationally and internationally. Susan loves to minister her gift of teaching to women.
