About the Author
Pastor Zach Terry was born in North Alabama. At the age of nineteen he heard the Gospel while channel surfing through a local Christian radio station and was haunted by it’s truth for several days. The key verse God use in bringing spiritual life to Zach was 2 Corinthians 5:21. “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf,
so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” It was this passage that God used to show Zach that salvation wasn’t found in something done by man, but rather was entirely purchased by the substitutionary death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the following months Zach served at his local church and began talking to people on the campus of the University of North Alabama about the claims of Christ. At the age of twenty Zach sensed God calling him to the ministry of mass evangelism. Over the next ten years he would travel to different cities throughout the South East United States strengthening churches and preaching the Gospel to the lost. In 2004 Zach accepted the call to Pastor his first church in rural central Kentucky - the Lancaster Baptist Church. Over the next three years the Lancaster Church doubled in size averaging over 500 in weekly attendance and leading it’s area in baptisms. In 2008 Zach returned to North Alabama to become Senior Pastor of the Capshaw Baptist Church. Since that time Capshaw has baptized nearly 300 people and has grown from an average weekly attendance of 425 to over 900 people and the growth continues. Zach is committed to verse by verse, expository preaching. He views the local church as a missionary outpost that is commissioned to win people to Christ both locally and globally. The thrust of his ministry consists not only in preaching the Word, but in leading the church to reflect the Word of God in practical ways both as a corporate body and through its individual members.
