"While there is sadness in leaving coaching and leaving the Lady Charger program that I have cared so deeply about, I'm also very excited to answer a calling to be a part of the leadership team and to have this incredible opportunity to help lead our church," Heintz said. "The move will also allow my wife and I to start a marriage ministry we feel led to start, as well as pursue my credentials to become a teaching pastor."
