Bro. Zac came to Pine Grove from just down the road in Gadsden on January 8, 2017. Previously he had served as Pastor at three other Alabama Baptist churches as well as several churches as youth pastor. He is a graduate of UAB where he played football for the Blazers and earned a degree in Secondary Education. He also earned a Master’s degree from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He was a history teacher and high school football coach for 10 years before going full time in ministry.
Bro. Zac believes in a church ministry that involves preaching the Word of God with energy and compassion. He is a conservative Southern Baptist, who views God’s Word as being the inerrant, inspired, infallible Word of God. His favorite style of preaching is expository, verse by verse preaching. He is a firm believer in evangelism and soul winning and the discipleship of those who are in Christ.
He met Rachel Johnson while preaching at a revival at a small country church where she played the piano. They were married on June 19, 1998 and have three beautiful children- Austin, Becca, and Chapman.
