Zach loves seeing people restored through God’s grace in their life. His honest teaching and real life stories connect with people’s hearts and allow him to offer hope in difficult seasons. Zach frequently speaks at youth groups, college groups, and men’s events on battling depression, addiction, and building authentic relationships.


Zach, a South Carolina native, has a long history with Clayton King Ministries. He graduated from Clemson University and was a part of the very first Crossroads Discipleship Home (CDH) in 2005.

Following his time in CDH, Zach moved to Gainesville, FL to help with a church plant. He became the Associate Pastor where he learned the meaning of ministering to youth, families, and college students.

After a few years of living and working in Gainesville, Zach returned to work with Clayton King Ministries. He served as the Discipleship Director for four years and currently serves as an Itinerant Speaker.

Years of experience in pastoring, teaching, and community development have fostered a love for people. This love has fueled a strong passion to help and understand people, resulting in his Counseling Degree from Liberty University.

Zach and his wife, Ashley, welcomed their daughter, Everly, in December 2015. They live in Anderson, SC with their two cats, Sox and Oliver, and their energetic dog, Dabo.
