He enjoys spending time with his wife, Rebecca, and their two boys, friends, sports (Roll Tide!), reading, cooking (especially BBQ), and working with his hands. He holds degrees from Southeastern Bible College (B.A.) and Beeson Divinity School (M.Div., and Dr. Min.).

He and his wife, Hannah, have been married since 2019, and are foster parents. Zack likes to read, cook, watch Auburn football, and listen to music (preferably live).
