Sam Heaton

Director of Children & Youth Ministry

Both Cincinnati natives, Sam and his wife Tara got married in 2015 and moved to Saint Louis a week later so Sam could attend Covenant Seminary. He graduated with his M.Div in 2018 and a few months later started his position at Grace & Peace. Sam and Tara live in South City with their crazy son, Kuyper, born in January 2019, and Maeva, born in December of 2020. When he’s not doing stuff for youth and kid's ministry, Sam likes to run, read promiscuously, listen to rap a little too loudly, and drink egg nog year-round.
