Zach Zehnder is a devoted husband, father, 4th generation pastor, author, and speaker. He is the founder of Red Letter Living, LLC and the author of the bestselling Red Letter Challenge, which was introduced to the public in 2018. Together Zach and his wife Allison co-wrote with author Doug Peterson Red Letter Challenge Kids in July 2019.
Zach met and married his wife, Allison, while completing his undergraduate work at Concordia University Wisconsin in 2004. Zach then graduated with his Masters of Divinity from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO in 2010.
Zach was called to plant theCross Family in Mount Dora, Florida, and continues to lead this innovative and fast-growing church family. Through creative ideas such as breaking a Guinness World Record for the Longest Speech to raise money for a recovery house and paying for the church logo to be tattooed on church members, Zach’s ministry endeavors have made international headlines multiple times.
Zach has two sons Nathan and Brady. He loves playing golf with his sons, eating Chipotle, and rooting for Cleveland sports teams! He is a number 8 on the Enneagram, which represents “The Challenger,” so it makes sense he would write a book and lead a ministry that is about challenging people to be greater followers of Jesus.
Zach is a highly sought-after speaker. If you are interested in having Zach speak at your church, conference, event, etc. please email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.redletterchallenge.com/zach.
