has been married to her husband Jeff Gove for 14 years. They have three children – ages 11, 9 and 7. Heather has served in Women’s ministry for 7 years. The Gove’s moved to La Quinta in 2013 and attend The Garden Fellowship where Heather serves on the Women’s Ministry Board and Garden Mom’s Board. Heather’s passion is for people and has never met a stranger! Although connected here in the valley, the family spends a good portion of their summer in Northern Idaho enjoying a simple, country lifestyle.
married her husband, Brent, nearly 11 years ago. She is in the wonderful season of being a stay-at-home mom of their two children, ages 4 and 8. Shannon is also active in women’s ministries at her church. She has a degree in journalism from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and enjoys uncovering more about God’s heart for His original chosen people, the Jews, in the Old Testament and other texts. She says the most valuable and fulfilling aspect of serving in 1 Step Closer ministries is that she is continually immersed in The Bible, where she learns more and more of God’s unchanging character through His Word.
has been singing at churches ever since she can remember. Her call into leading worship started early and led her to where she is today; the Worship Leader at Our Savior’s Palm Springs. She took this call in 2012 after being at home full time with her two little ones (now 8 and 6). God has continued to grow in Heather a desire and passion to release a heart of worship wherever he calls her to. It was that passion (and a brave friend) that inspired Heather to start Pop Up Worship. Pop Up Worship is a traveling music ministry with a vision to release a heart of worship in the communities to set an atmosphere for transformation and revival in our Valley. Heather is a singer, songwriter, Mommy, lover of Jesus, and worshipper at heart. She is excited to partner with 1 Step Closer ministries to lead in worship and invest in equipping women with the power of the Word of God in their lives. Visit popupworship.com for more information.
