One of the great struggles facing followers of Jesus Christ, especially in high school, is assurance of salvation. Because our relationship with Jesus is spiritual in nature, doubts can creep in at various times. Moreover, assurance of salvation impacts many aspects of life including anxiety/depression, service in God’s Kingdom, and love for the Lord. We believe this is a highly relevant topic for high school students and believe everyone who comes (mature believers, those new to a relationship with Jesus, and unbelievers) will grow through this focus.

Raised in South Florida, Zack graduated from Erskine College in 2011.
Two weeks after graduating from Erskine, Zack married Elly whom he met during their senior year of high school. As newlyweds, Zack and Elly worked for Reformed University Fellowship at Erskine College.
In 2013, they moved to Charlotte, NC to attend Reformed Theological Seminary. Zack now serves as the associate pastor at Reformation ARP in Hendersonville, NC (shout out to RefPresYouth!).
Zack and Elly have been married 7 years and have two little boys. Calvin is two and half years old and Owen is 7 months.
