Rev. Zach Holdorf, Senior Pastor
Pastor Zach Holdorf is married to Katrina, and has three children: Jack, Avery, and Mackenzie. You may hear him and his family use the term “team family” as being a family on mission. Not only is family important but he also has a love for the Scriptures and a heart for the lost. If you ever want to chat a while, come find him. He would love to talk with you.
He enjoys sports of all kinds. His interests include playing golf, softball, and sitting in the woods hunting. In the Fall, he will be glued to the television as he cheers on the Huskers. Go Big Red! During the summer months, he will be keeping his eye on Cubs baseball. He enjoys fishing as often as he can. When he is not fishing, you may find him in his man cave watching a movie.
Pastor Zach grew up in Nebraska. In 2008, he earned a B.A. in History at Concordia University in Seward Nebraska. He then attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis where in 2012 completed his ministerial formation. He was ordained into the Office of the Pastoral ministry on June 24th, 2012. He served Trinity Lutheran Church and School from July 2012- August 2021, first as Associate Pastor for five years and then as Senior Pastor for four years.
On August 2nd, 2021, Pastor Zach accepted the call to Redeemer Lutheran Church in Jackson Michigan as their Senior Pastor and was installed on September 19th, 2021. He very much looks forward to what the Lord has in store for the family of God at Redeemer Lutheran Church. As the writer to the Hebrews says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1-2).”
