Zach Rawson
Pax Christi

Zach is originally from the Twin Cities, but like many left town for college. In his second year at the University of Minnesota Duluth he met somebody who loves Jesus more than anything or anybody and the encounter changed his life. The following year he transferred to the University of Saint Thomas for it's Catholic Studies program and is currently putting that experience to work as the Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministry at Pax Christi in Northwest Rochester. Zach is married to Suzanne, a pediatric nurse at St. Mary's, and they have two energetic and crazy, but beautiful, little girls named Sydney and Juliette. Zach loves to read, throw a Frisbee, and sit around campfires on cool fall nights. Steer clear of Zach whenever the Wild, Twins, or Patriots lose.
