Pastor: Ben Zak

Get to know Pastor Zak

I grew up in the Midwest in a loving Christian home. After a period of wandering and an overall lack of purpose in my life, God graciously rescued me. He instilled in me a desire to read the Bible in community with others. He filled my life with a new sense of purpose and energy that I did not have before. I wanted others to enjoy the gifts that I was enjoying so I decided to study for pastoral ministry.

Throughout my pastoral journey, I’ve served in a multi-ethnic ministry in Falls Church, VA; a unique and faith-forming ministry in North Fort Myers, FL; and a traditional and youth-focused ministry in Milwaukee, WI.

“My favorite thing about pastoring is connecting with people and hearing their story.”

I’m interested in equipping others to read the Bible as a narrative which reaches its climax in the account of Jesus of Nazareth. My responsibility as a pastor is to discern and analyze culture according to the kingdom of God. By life-example and by preaching, my role is to direct others to live as though they are actually forgiven and called to suffer for the benefit of their neighbor.

Pastor Zak holds a Bachelor of Arts from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. He holds a Master of Divinity from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI.
Janna is my adventurous and encouraging wife. We have four children: Willow, Clyde, Magnolia and Felix.

I would love to connect with you.
