Stu has been the lead pastor at Zion for 30 years. He's a Lincoln native, graduate of UNL, and got his M.Div. and D.Min from Covenant Theological Seminary in Saint Louis, Missouri. He and his wife Kelli have three grown children and a dog Scout, on which they dote shamelessly. For some reason, Stu runs things called "half marathons" and "10K's". Stu has cultivated strong relationships with many other pastors in Lincoln, and frequently hosts them on his Saturday morning Friendly Fire program on KLIN, 1400 AM radio.
Keith has been full-time at Zion since 2008. His associate duties include doing pretty much whatever Stu tells him to do. Currently that involves work with adult fellowship and education, children's ministries, and print and online communication. Keith and his wife Jana have five grown children and in the past few years have rejoiced to welcome three grandsons and two granddaughters. Keith is a tennis nut and also a Shakespeare fanboy. He plans to stage a production of The Tragick Historie of King Saul just as soon as he finishes writing it. Real Soon Now.
Kyle joined the Zion staff half time in 2015 and continues to divide his time between his Zion youth responsibilities and his work on the Youth for Christ staff of Juvenile Justice Ministries. Kyle is married to Chelsea, and they have two sons and two daughters. He is known as "the guy with tattoos" and has many undiscovered and unexhibited wonderful qualities. He likes going to jail, drinking coffee, and answering questions not yet asked.
RUF Campus Minister
Brian came to Nebraska in 2014 to serve as campus minister with Reformed University Fellowship at the University of Nebraska for the churches of the Platte Valley Presbytery.

His wife Rebecca is also on staff with RUF and works on the women’s side of things and is instrumental in opening the Brown home for student gatherings. Brian and his family attend Redeemer Church, one of Zion's daughter congregations, which is downtown practically across the street from the campus.
