My name is Zach, and I’m an author, preacher, and creator from New England. But mainly, I’m a writer doing everything I can to just keep writing.
Here’s my “official” author bio, if you’re into that sort of thing:
Zach Hoag is an author, preacher, and creator from New England. Planting a church in one of the least churched cities in the U.S. (Burlington, Vermont), and pursuing ministry beyond that in a variety of spaces, Zach has learned a few things about the power of a deeply rooted life in Christ. Zach has found belonging in the Vermont countryside where he lives with his wife, Kalen, and their three girls. Find him writing at zhoag.com and follow him on Twitter @zhoag.
But perhaps the thing you really need to know about me is that my experiences growing up in a ministry family, and then planting a church of my own, were not all sweetness and light. In fact, those experiences ushered a lot of darkness into my life. And it has only been in recent years that I have begun to believe the light is winning.
In fact, when I was at my lowest point, at my wit’s end with no idea what to do next in my faith and life, I believe God gave me a word of guidance that was like a key unlocking the door of hope. He said, “Just keep writing.”
And I haven’t stopped since.
These days, I’m writing about calling, culture, and creativity in the context of being a 21st century Christian. I believe a uniquely Creative Christianity will lead us and the world to a flourishing faith and life. I believe it because that’s the very story I’m living out on a daily basis.
Thank you so much for reading along. Feel free to contact me anytime. And if you want, jot this note down before you leave, because it’s the truest thing I know:Everything changes when we begin to believe the light is winning.Click To Tweet
