Since 2006, Citizen Heights has committed to inspire hope, remove limitations, and help people experience God’s possible for their life. No matter what you’ve already achieved, or how great your past failures are, we’re convinced of one thing: that God’s possible awaits. New possibilities for your marriage, your career, your finances, and every area of life.
Michael and Heather Giroux are the lead pastors of Citizen Heights, a Hillsong Family Church, with campuses in Washington, D.C., Fairfax, Virginia, and Online. In May of 2006, Citizen Heights was planted out of The City Church, in Seattle, Washington, with the support of Pastors Wendell & Gini Smith, and Judah & Chelsea Smith.
In 2017, Citizen Heights became a Hillsong Family Church under the empowerment of Pastors Brian & Bobby Houston. The Hillsong Family is a group of like-spirited, forward thinking, kingdom-building visionaries and ministries working together for a greater cause.
Pastor Michael and Heather’s vision is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to the Washington Metro area by building a community where anyone and everyone, has an opportunity to be FOUND in God’s grace, FREED in God’s care, FORMED in God’s promises and FULFILLED in God’s house. They have a passion to see a church where hope is inspired and people can experience God’s possible for their lives. Michael, a former lawyer, and Heather, have a unique calling to champion unity, in an often-divided city. They’ve watched in wonder, as God has gathered the diversity of their international city, into His family, and their church community.
Michael & Heather have been married for 22 years and have four amazing sons- Caedon (16), Gavin (13), Owen (12) and Easton (7). They love family time and enjoying all the sights, sounds and tastes Washington, D.C. offers. They are also seriously big fans of all the Washington sports teams and hope you’ll join them cheering for the home teams!
