Conference Assistant

Heather Hilbert

Heather Hilbert is a born & bred Hoosier, growing up on the north side of Indianapolis and attending Indiana University, Bloomington. Not growing up attending church, she came to faith as a 20-something when she began her family. Before long, church was the place Heather felt most herself. Thanks to a sincere UMC pastor who never shied away from Heather’s questions about faith and Jesus, she committed herself to the United Methodist Church and raising her kids in the local church.

She has served on administrative councils, led lay teams, worked on UMC local church staff and now brings her skills & passions to Indiana Conference staff.

Being unchurched until adulthood, she has a particular passion around hospitality and missions in the church, striving to make sure everyone she encounters feels seen, known & loved. When she’s not busy with her family, you can find her cozying up with a good book, studying the Enneagram, or volunteering in the community for a passion project.
