Meet Our Lead Pastor

Heather Semple

Heather Semple became the Lead Pastor of Madison Park Church in January of 2022. Prior to Madison Park, she served on 12Stone Church’s Central Campus Leadership Team in Atlanta, Georgia. Before 12Stone, she served as Lead Pastor of Red Cedar Church in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. During the tenure of her leadership, Red Cedar grew from a small store front church to a multi-site congregation reaching the entire region of Wisconsin’s Northwoods. Heather is also a graduate of Southern Wesleyan University and received her master’s degree from Nazarene Theological Seminary.

While her calling and commitment to the local church is foremost, Heather is a much sought-after leader and speaker. Her direct and disarming communication style gives her a unique voice of both compassion and challenge. And her own personal story of rebellion to restoration fuels her passion to see all people find freedom and full life in Jesus Christ.

She has been married to Jeff Semple for over 22 years and together they have two daughters, Ailee (19), and Bella (16) and son, Judah (11), along with two co-dependent dogs, Lewi and Murfie.

We are led by Pastors.

The Vision of Madison Park comes from God and is implemented by the Pastoral Staff team, led by Pastor Heather Semple. This team oversees the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church. These staff pastors serve the congregation and are responsible for the development of the spiritual life of the church.


We are supported by Elders.

The Elders are non-staff members who oversee the finances and direct the provision of the facilities needed by the church. They provide counsel to the Lead Pastor regarding the major financial commitments of the church including the approval of the annual budget and ensuring that an annual audit is conducted of the finances.
