Zach Zajicek was raised in a strong, Christian family.  And it was at Fourth Baptist Church in Minneapolis where he first heard and believed the Gospel message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  Never intending to become a pastor, he focused on sports and athletics in high school.  But “many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21).  It was during his junior and senior year of high school that God placed several key mentors in his life that would show him the path of ministry and service to the church.  

So, in 1997, he began studying for pastoral ministry at Maranatha Baptist University and jumped into a 10 year long ministry to teenagers. After finishing his Mdiv at Central Seminary, he served as senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Vinton Iowa for nearly five years.  He and Bethany have seven children, Lynette, Logan, Lily, Landon, Levi, Lucas and Lincoln.  Zach enjoys everything that has to do with motorcycles, his family, athletics, and dreaming of the rock climber phenom he never was.
