We welcome Larry Heller to the Stoneworks Board of Directors. Larry grew up in suburban Chicago to Christian mother, atheist father with a Jewish upbringing. He became a Christian through the ministry of Young Life in 1972.

Larry moved to San Antonio in 1975 to attend Trinity University (BA in music), met his wife-to-be Kim the year after graduation, and married in 1982; they will celebrate 30 years of marriage this July.

Larry and Kim have five terrific children – three of which were adopted from Russia as older-age adoptions. Sergei, 18 (adopted at age 8), Olya, 21 (adopted at age 12) and Zhenya, 20 (adopted at age 13). Their oldest children, Tyson (27) and Max (23), are graduates of Rice and Texas A&M Universities respectively. Tyson will receive his M.D. this May.

Larry’s first mission trip to Russia (summer camp ministry) was in 1999, and he has been coordinator of missions to Russia for the Oak Hills Church since 2000. Larry has served on the boards of Springs Of Revival, MIR and Road of Life, a transitional living program for orphanage graduates in St. Petersburg.

As a result of 13 years of summer camp ministry, Larry dedicates one trip to Russia each year to advance the many strong and deep relationships he has with orphans, children, young adults, interpreters & their families and the Russian families of his own adopted children. Larry is blessed to serve as father, godfather, mentor, supporter, life coach, financial safety net and prayer warrior to several dozen people in St. Petersburg.
