Meet Dennis and Mary Heath, IM Missionaries to Bulgaria
Dennis and Mary were Free Will Baptist affiliate missionaries from 1988 to 1994 while serving with the US Air Force in Germany. With Mary at his side, Dennis pastored 14 years at Stonewall, Oklahoma, and three years at Ardmore, Oklahoma, following his military retirement in 2003. They are answering the call to return to missionary service and will serve with the church-planting teams in Bulgaria.
Dennis and Mary met and were married while at Air Force technical training at Biloxi, Mississippi, in 1978. Dennis was saved at the age of 14 in Orlando, Florida, while participating in a Bible Study led by his 9th-grade music teacher. Mary was saved on Easter Sunday in 1979 at the church where Dennis’ parents attended in Orlando, Florida, while Dennis had already been sent to Germany. By the time they were reunited in June of 1979, God had prepared them both for a lifetime of service to Him.
Dennis is from Centrahoma, Oklahoma, and Mary is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They have two sons, a daughter, and seven grandchildren.
