Pastor Zach was born and raised in Maryland. His favorite football team is the Baltimore Ravens. Saved as a college dropout and drug dealer in 2006, he immediately began an itinerate ministry of sharing his testimony and preaching the gospel at schools, youth events, missions trips, and revivals. Soon after he met his wife, Carie, and felt called to full-time pastoral ministry. He has since received his Bachelor of Arts from Moody Bible Institute and his Masters of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (which is where he and Pastor Kyle first met). Zach and Carie were married in 2009. They have three children–Benaiah (2012), Judah (2014), and SelahGrace (2016).
