Meet Our Church Officers
Rev. Zach Keele, Pastor
Rev. Zachary Keele grew up on a ranch in a small town named Crawford, Colorado. He attended Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania and then received his Master of Divinity from Westminster Seminary California. He was ordained in February 2004 by the Southern California Presbytery and in the summer of 2006 was called to be our pastor.
I have been attending Escondido OPC since 2003, and was ordained as an elder in 2006. My wife and I have six children. I have an undergraduate degree in geological sciences, and later went back to college to earn a physics teaching credential. I enjoy teaching physics at Mt. Carmel High School, and in the summer I work as a lifeguard in La Jolla for the City of San Diego. I greatly appreciate the Good News I hear preached every Sunday at EOPC!
I moved with my family from The Netherlands to Southern California in 2003, and became member of EOPC in 2004. I and my wife Nanda have four children. In daily life I am an electrical engineer.
I felt honored when I was asked to be a Deacon. I feel that I finally have a ministry. It's nice to be able to come alongside others and be of service. I enjoy greeting all the members as well as getting to meet visitors and (potential members). Diane and I have been married for almost 35 years. We have one son Ryan and three grandchildren.
