Our Pastor

Rev. Zach Keele

Reverend Zachary Keele grew up on a ranch in a small town named Crawford, Colorado. He spent much of his young life running cattle, fixing fence, and putting up hay. After high school, he left Crawford to attend Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. During his time at Geneva he met his wife, Tovauh, whom he married six hours after his graduation in 1999. A year later, the couple located to Southern California for Reverend Keele to begin his Master of Divinity studies at Westminster Seminary California. He graduated with honors from WSC as well as welcomed the birth of his first son, Alexander, in May of 2003. After his graduation, he was called to serve at the Escondido Orthodox Presbyterian Church Plant. He was ordained in February 2004 by the Southern California Presbytery. Shortly thereafter, Zach and Tovauh brought son Beor and daughter Luthien into the world.

In the summer of 2006 Escondido OPC went on to be particularized and we once again called Rev. Keele to be our pastor.  

Besides being the full-time senior pastor at Escondido OPC, he teaches every spring semester at WSC. When he is not serving the church, he enjoys wrestling with his kids, hiking, surfing, and enjoying fellowship with family and friends.
