Called: One word, many ways —Zach’s story

By: David Stucke, communications associate, Dakotas Conference

“I went forward at an altar call when I was seven-years-old,” says Pastor Zach Kingery. “I felt a definite draw to proclaim the Gospel and to share it.”

In his teen years, he was given the opportunity to serve and preach at youth Sunday. It was then that he felt his call was real. It is more than just a feeling.

Kingery’s pastor gave him various leadership roles and walked beside him. He now serves as a local licensed pastor at The United Methodist Church in Wessington Springs, South Dakota.
