Help us welcome our newest faculty member, Zack Martin!

Zack will join us as an Instructor of Historical Theology and as the Dean of Students. He will teach graduate and undergraduate courses in Church History and Christian Theology. He plans to begin work at HCU in July.

Zack was born to Michael and Helen G. Martin and raised in Warren County. He came to know Jesus and love the church from birth at the East End Drive congregation, where he was baptized at age 11. In high school, he was mentored by Bro. Kirk Brothers at the Central congregation. Under Bro. Kirk, Zack learned how to minister and preach. Soon afterward, Bro. Clayton Gribble began to recommend Zack for fill-in work throughout Warren County.

After high school, Zack attended Freed-Hardeman University and graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in Biblical Studies. In December 2007, he moved to Louisville, KY, where he lived until his recent move to Florence, AL. Zack previously worked with the Middletown, Watterson Trail, and 36th and Garland congregations. Since January 2017, he has been working with the Cedar Springs congregation in the Fern Creek community.

In addition to his degree from Freed-Hardeman, Zack received a Master of Divinity in Biblical and Theological Studies (‘14) and a Master of Theology in Church History (‘20) from Southern Seminary in Louisville and is currently pursuing his PhD in Historical Theology from Midwestern Seminary in Kansas City, MO. He has been an adjunct instructor at Louisville Bible College and Freed-Hardeman University. In his very little spare time, you can find Zack cheering on his beloved TN vols, working on family genealogy, or baking some sweet treats in the kitchen.
