Zach was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but grew up in Borger, Texas.  It was in Borger that he met and married his wife, Shanna. They have two little boys, Dax and Gus.

Zach graduated from Borger High school and went on to South Plains College, majoring in Sound Technology.  He is currently pursuing a bachelor degree in General Theological Studies at Oral Roberts University.

Prior to arriving at Evergreen, Zach served as Youth and Worship Pastor at Newlife Church in Dalhart, Texas.

Zach has a passion for his family and anything music related.  He loves helping young worship leaders or aspiring worship leaders grow and develop.  He also loves hearing the Body of Christ singing together in worship.

When time allows, Zach enjoys being in the mountains, reading a good book, producing music, drinking coffee, and spending time with his family.

Some might be surprised to learn that Zach traveled across the United States with a band, A Road Less Traveled, for almost 13 years, and released a few albums.
