Pastor Scott Hecht
Scott grew up as a preacher’s kid in small towns in both Nebraska and South Dakota. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a history major and math minor. During his time at UNL, Scott was convicted of his utter sinfulness and need for a Savior, which led him to receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Also during his college years in Lincoln, Scott met his wife-to-be, Melody Vermaas. They married shortly after Scott graduated. God graciously provided for Scott and Melody to go to Los Angeles, CA, where Scott attended the Master’s Seminary and graduated in 1995. Since graduation, Scott has pastored churches in Springfield, SD, and Indianapolis, IN. He joined the Heartland Bible Church staff full-time in October of 2003. Scott and Melody's children are:  Carissa and husband John Brunk, John, Joshua, Anna, Jacob and Ella.

A passage that the Lord has deeply impressed upon Scott’s heart is Psalm 73:25-26:
“Whom have I in heaven but Thee, and besides Thee, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
