Denver Baptist Church is excited to introduce our new pastor! Zach Sommerlot and his family have just moved to Iowa from South Dakota. Zach will start his new position in July.
Zach Sommerlot grew up in Dunkerton, Iowa. He spent every summer, since he was a boy, working for his dad’s construction company (Sommerlot Brothers Construction – Commercial Grain Handling Systems) and was involved in most sports. He attended Ellsworth Community College and played football.
He then transferred to the University of Northern Iowa where he got involved with the Navigators college ministry. It was during this time that he felt God calling him to vocational ministry. Following this, Zach moved to Sioux Falls to attend North American Baptist Seminary (now Sioux Falls Seminary). There, he got involved with a church plant in a nearby town where he was mentored and gained a lot of pastoral experience. In May 2011, Zach was commissioned by their church to plant another church in Brandon SD, a town nearby.
Denver Baptist Church welcomes Zach and his family and looks forward to serving Jesus Christ together. In addition to his and his family’s passion for Christ, the Sommerlot family loves being outdoors, playing at parks, barbecuing, having people over, and singing.
