Our Pastor and Elders

Let us introduce to you our Pastor & Elders:


Pastor Zach Seal

was born in Jonesville, Louisiana to Christian parents, Tim and Sanrea Seal. He spent 11 years in Louisiana, listening to his father preach the Word every week at Grace Baptist Church. These weekly sermons helped lay the foundation for Pastor Zach’s strong devotion to expository preaching. After moving to Memphis, TN during his middle school years, Zach graduated high school from Evangelical Christian School, then received a Bachelor of Arts in both English and Film and Video Production from the University of Memphis. He also received an M. Div. from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary, where he is currently finishing his Ph.D. in Theology.

He and his wife, Elisabeth, have a beautiful baby girl, Evelyn. They enjoy traveling, eating at new and unusual restaurants, and exploring the many things to do in and around the Bay Area.

His favorite preachers are D. Martyn Lloyd Jones and John MacArthur.

Ruling Elder Brian Eschen

is a fourth generation Bay Area native, and lives a quarter of a mile from his childhood home in Danville, CA. His deep roots in California and love for his home state give him a desire to see all Californians come to faith in Christ. Currently Brian runs a family-owned real estate investment company with his twin brother Jeff. His love for education has lead him to volunteer his time teaching local homeschool students in an outreach ministry started by his brother and him. Since 1999, Brian has been happily married to his beautiful bride Teresa. They enjoy traveling, exploring history, and playing music together with their three children, Brianna, Josiah, and Risa.
