For nineteen years prior, the Rev.Neumark was pastor of

and community ministry in the Bronx led to a highly acclaimed book,
Breathing Space: A Spiritual Journey in the South Bronx (Beacon

Getting On Message: Challenging the Christian Right from the Heart of
the Gospel.

Heidi is married to Gregorio Orellano and they are the parents of Ana
