Rev. Duane Bamsch has served Zion since November of 2014. Prior to accepting the Call to be the shepherd of our congregation, Pastor Bamsch served a rural congregation in central Texas for 10 years. Before that, he served a congregation in the outer suburbs of Houston, Texas for over 4 years. Having lived his whole life in Texas (aside from the years of his seminary education in Fort Wayne, Indiana), Pastor Bamsch is a die-hard Texas Longhorns fan. He grew up on a farm and spent most of his free time there hunting and fishing. He has been married to his wife, Stephanie, for over 24 years and they have two children, Emma and Andrew.
