Zach Griggs

Discipleship Leader for Children and Youth

Zach loves talking with people about how they see God moving and leading in their lives. He is devoted to working with children and students to help them notice and respond to how God is meeting them right now, right where they are. He and his wife, Katie, both grew up in Yorktown, VA and first moved to Tennessee in 2015. After studying Ministry Leadership at Johnson University, he returned to Virginia as a campus minister at Christopher Newport University. During that year of ministry, Zach was led to the United Methodist Church through continued discernment of how God was calling him forward on his faith journey. In 2020, Zach was called to join the FHUMC staff as Discipleship Leader for Children and Youth.

In his spare time, Zach enjoys listening to podcasts, reading, cooking, spending time outside with his family, and enjoying a good cup of coffee. Zach, Katie, their son Wilder, and daughter M.J. are thankful and excited to call Nashville and the Forest Hills UMC community home!
