The youngest of three children, Zach was raised in a loving home in rural Germantown, Wis. It was there that his parents gave his sisters and him the chance to each learn an instrument of their choice. Zach chose the guitar. It was also there that Zach learned the value of family, the preciousness of relationships, and, greatest of all, the truth about Jesus. Church every Sunday made an impression. Consistency at home spoke the loudest.
Always a bit of an “old soul,” Zach began writing songs as a teenager and dreamt of using them to tell his story and connect with others. Meanwhile, a unique opportunity at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School allowed him, a high school student, to begin leading hymns at local churches. These parallel passions – performing artist and worship leader – would stretch out before him into different seasons, bands and ministries, Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.

Zach moved to Nashville, Tenn., in his mid-20s where he continued his career as a solo artist. It was during this season that the Lord began to make clear that his desire to connect with and help people was best satisfied in worship, in leading them to Jesus, the one worth all of our praise, our highest and best.
Zach also met his wife, Kacey – a songbird herself – while living in Tennessee. The two relocated to Cedarburg, Wis., in 2018 where they currently reside with their three-year-old, Simon, and eagerly await the coming of their second, a girl, due this fall. 

Alliance Bible Church in Mequon played a pivotal role in reinvigorating Zach and Kacey’s faith and their walk with the Lord, individually and together, since discovering the church in 2021. They quickly became regular faces on the ABC worship team and have enjoyed every moment getting plugged into the community and their small group. While it is bittersweet to part ways, they know they will stay united in spirit. And they know this is God’s calling.

Zach is very honored and excited to have been offered the position of Worship Arts Ministry Director for Lakeside Alliance Church and can’t wait to see God move through this ministry in Port Washington and beyond.
