He grew up in Hawaii, studied music in Los Angeles, trained in Philosophy and Biblical Studies at Denver Seminary, and recently completed doctoral work in the theology and worship of the English Reformation. His thesis traces reformer Thomas Cranmer’s application of the doctrine of justification by faith alone through his architecture of the Book of Common Prayer.

He is a songwriter and producer, most currently with Advent Birmingham Music. Zac has contributed articles and posts to Worship Leader Magazine, Reformed Worship, Desiring God, The Gospel Coalition, and Doxology & Theology.
Zac has been married for nearly twenty years to his wife, Abby, and they have four children—Joel, Jesse, Brody, and Bronwyn.
