Zach and Heidi are serving with Campus Ambassadors at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. They are discipling young men and women, leading Bible studies and training students to become Christian servants in leadership, sent out to share Christ’s love around the world.
Zach enrolled at Central Washington University in 2007, where he learned what it meant to be a follower of Jesus Christ through Campus Ambassadors. When it came time to graduate, with much prayer he decided to join staff full time so he could reach students and lead them to a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ.
Heidi was a part of campus ministry during her college years and saw how impactful that stage of life is. She loves discipling women, Bible studies, and any opportunity to share Christ.
Faith in Christ wasn’t a big part of Zach’s life growing up, though he did have some church background. Having a foundation in Christ gave him a path to turn to when life began to crumble around him. That is when he turned to Christ his senior year of high school and discovered he was in need of a Savior. That faith continued on into college when the call to go into ministry first came. He was later encouraged to go to church and get involved in a campus ministry to mature in faith.
Today Zach believes that God has confirmed the call to spend his life in ministry for God.
Heidi grew up in a Christian household and prayed to receive Christ with her parents when she was 5 years old. Entering junior high she attended a small summer Bible camp and realized there she wanted to serve her Savior and Lord and dedicated her life to His call.
After recommitting to Christ, Heidi hungered for the Lord and began to dig deeply into His Word and learn more about Jesus. She continues to this day learning to pursue Him as He pursues us.
Zach and Heidi were married in August, 2014 and have a daughter, Lydia.
