Zack Ruder (Lead Pastor) - Zack has been a pastor for the past 12 years working with children, students, and adults in various roles. Zack’s heart is to see the Gospel radically transform the German Village neighborhood and to see The Village Church become a community of mature believers in Jesus who seek to love God, their families, and their communities with their whole selves. Zack is married to his beautiful wife and best friend Megan, and they have a two year-old daughter Abby. They also have two dogs, Jester & Zeke. Zack graduated from Geneva College with a B.A. in Biblical Studies & Philosophy and a M.A. in Education. He is currently finishing up his Masters of Divinity at Western Theological Seminary. Zack loves teaching, reading, music, film, hanging out with friends, sports (especially football), and most of all spending time with his family.
