Josh and his wife, Susan, joined Wycliffe in 2013. Prior to joining Wycliffe, Josh spent several years in an international law firm practice in Chicago, representing corporate clients in a wide variety of business litigation matters. After years of praying for an opportunity to become more directly involved in the spread of the gospel, God answered and led the Heidelman family to Wycliffe. In his role as Chief Legal Officer, Josh is able to connect his background and expertise to the mission of Bible translation. Josh also works part-time as a Field Coordinator for Bible translation projects in Ghana.
Josh and Susan have five children — Danielle, Luke, Will, Kate and Natalie — and live in Orlando, Florida.
