Pastors And Elders

"So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.
And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory."

1 Peter 5:1-4


Chris Whorton

Senior Pastor
God has been so gracious to me. First and foremost, God has given His Son Jesus to die in my place for my sins that I would be forgiven and become his child. Second, He has blessed me with an amazing wife for over 23 years, Corrie, and has given us 7 wonderful children to love and raise for Him. Third, God has called me to serve Him in pastoral ministry for more than 17 years, and we especially praise Him for leading us to serve here at HBC in Gravette, Arkansas. I welcome any questions you may have and look forward to meeting you!

Mitchell Yost

Discipleship Pastor
God is great and gracious, and the Yosts strive, though imperfectly, to make much of our great and gracious King. I am ever thankful for the life that I get to lead as a husband, father and pastor. Jesus alone saved me from the depths of my sin, and I seek to humbly serve him with gratitude in all that I do as a teacher and shepherd of Christ's church.

My wife Sarah and I met in college and have been married for seven years. Our three children, Judah (5), Ellie (3) and Abigail (8 months) are precious gifts from the Lord and we love them. I have been blessed to have served Christ in ministry for nearly ten years, while coming to Heritage in May 2022. I am here and available to serve you as we seek to follow Christ together!
