Pastor Zach was born in Waconia, MN but moved out of state at a young age, spending his youth in Colorado and Wyoming. Zach grew up in a loving Christian home, with his father serving as a pastor (sharing his passion for ministry) and his mom serving as a librarian (sharing her love for reading and learning). Zach came to know Christ at a young age and felt a call to ministry when he was a senior in high school. After graduating, Zach returned to Minnesota to attend Crown College where he earned a B.A. in Pastoral Leadership and his M.A. in Ministry Leadership. Zach also met and married his wife, Haley, while at Crown. After both graduating, the Joneses returned to Colorado to live in Fort Collins. During that time, Zach served as a pastor at a small Alliance Church in nearby Cheyenne, WY. Zach and Haley also welcomed their first child, Charis.
Zach and Haley both share a passion for missions and reaching the lost in hard to reach places. Together, they have spent many years overseas in various locales and cultures. It was through serving overseas that Zach and Haley both discovered their passion for ministry.
In his spare time Zach enjoys getting outdoors, enjoying a cup of coffee, disc golfing, playing board games, cooking exotic foods, and reading a good book.
His favorite authors include Dallas Willard, Timothy Keller, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ed Stetzer, Jonathan Haidt, and Skye Jethani.
