Ministry Support Manager (Office Management, Facility Usage)
Heather Bradford, Obl. OSB was born and raised right here on the Westside. In addition to her role on staff, she has also served on several ministry teams here at the Westside Vineyard including Living Waters, Intensive Prayer and Alpha as well as leading a home church. When she's not working, she enjoys reading about theology, monasticism, early church history and the occasional sci-fi adventure novel. She is an Oblate to St. Andrew's Abbey which she likes to think of as being an "undercover monk" and makes monthly retreats there as well as doing her best to live out monastic values in an urban setting. She is also a mom to an amazing daughter, Drake.
With a background developed through business ownership, higher education management and administration, and most recently as Accounting Manager for a large, well-known Los Angeles church, Stephi brings a Christ-centered focus to this important role in our administration. Stephi oversees many of the day-to-day finance, accounting, business and administrative activities essential to us being good stewards of God’s resources at the Westside Vineyard.
Dean was born and raised in the Philadelphia and New Jersey area. He grew up in a traditional liturgical church and went to church every Sunday. However, his commitment to pursue a relationship with Jesus was birthed while serving on a college worship team at Rutgers University. During his senior year in college, he had a life changing moment at a worship conference in Nashville where the Holy Spirit filled and changed his heart, further solidifying his call to worship ministry. After moving to California, he and his wife began attending the Anaheim Vineyard despite the long commute from LA. However, after visiting and connecting at an Altaer home church they felt led to attend and serve at the Westside Vineyard.
For 20 years, Dean has served as a worship leader, mentor and songwriter. He is passionate about leading and writing songs of worship that draw believers closer to Jesus. Over the past 10 years he has had the opportunity to record his songs with local LA musicians as well as with Grammy award winning songwriters, producers and artists in Nashville.
He is a devoted husband to his beautiful wife Flora and father to his energetic daughter Aviela. He enjoys traveling abroad, salsa dancing with his wife, and writing silly songs with his daughter. As an avid fitness/outdoor enthusiast, he can be found biking on the beach, Crossfit training, surfing or hiking trails along the Pacific Coast.
