    Darryn ScheskeFounding Pastor

    Darryn Scheske is the Founding Pastor of Heartland Church, a multi-generational, multi-ethnic, multiplying church in Indianapolis, Indiana. The son of second-generation missionaries, Darryn inherited his love for people in the islands of the Caribbean where he was raised. He has been married to his wife Loree for 24 years. They have a son and a daughter in college and one daughter in high school.

    Called by Converge MidAmerica in 2000, the Scheske’s moved to Indianapolis to start a new church without knowing anyone in the city. Over the last decade over 2,000 people have been baptized in water, publicly declaring their faith in Jesus Christ.  Today Heartland Church is attended by thousands of people at two locations in Indianapolis and the northeast suburb of Fishers. Heartland has also launched eight other new church plants in Indiana.

    Darryn also serves as Chairman of the Board of Overseers for Converge Worldwide and as the Indiana Director for Church Planting for Converge MidAmerica.
