Zach loves seeing people restored through God’s grace in their life. His honest teaching and real life stories connect with people’s hearts an 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. Zach is known for his love of singing loudly, eating great food, and altogether just loving life.

Following his time in CDH, Zach moved to Gainesville, FL to help with a church plant. Zach became the Associate Pastor where he learned what it means to minister to youth, families, and college students. It was there that he fell in love with his now wife, Ashley.

After a few years of living and working in Gainesville, Zach and Ashley returned to work with Clayton King Ministries. Zach now serves as the CDH Director and as Head Male Staff for Crossroads Summer Camp.

Through many years of working in the church and through his own personal struggles, Zach has seen the awesome power of God and learned how His power is perfected in our weakness. Zach has a strong passion to help and understand people and is currently studying for his Counseling Degree at Liberty University. Years of experience in pastoring, teaching, and community development have fostered in him a love for sharing life with others.

Zach and Ashley live in Anderson, SC with their two cats, "Sox" and "Oliver", and their new puppy, "Dabo".
