Rev. Zach Holler
Bible study leader
Zach Holler is a Provisional Elder serving an appointment as Associate Pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Waverly, Ohio. He also serves as co-chair of the of the Ohio Disability and Ministry Collaborative (ODMC), West Ohio Conference’s Disability Ministry Committee, charged with providing resources to local churches seeking to make their worship communities more inclusive of people of all abilities.
Zach discovered a passion for inclusive ministry shortly after earning his bachelor's degree in rehabilitation services from Wright State University in 2012. He began volunteering at his home church where he pioneered a disability ministry program. Two years later, Zach received a call from God to enter ministry as a pastor, which led him to attend seminary at United Theological Seminary, where he earned his MDiv in 2019.
Now Zach serves as Associate Pastor at Grace UMC and advocates for inclusive ministry across the West Ohio Conference and beyond. He does not focus exclusively on disability ministry, but he promotes inclusion of people with disabilities as an integral part of the life of the church and community. The powerful work of the Holy Spirit empowers all people to use their gifts as a unique act of worship to God.
