The Crossing Church

Pastors & Staff

Zach & Mandy MillerSenior Pastors

Him

Zach was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas and will be a Razorback fan for life. Although he moved quite a bit as a child he spent the majority of his time in Greenwood, Arkansas. After graduating high school, he attended Southwestern Assemblies of God University for the next four years. Zach went to SAGU with full intentions of playing football and eventually coaching. He was sure of one thing, he did not want to follow in his father's footsteps and be a pastor. However during that time, God began to change his plans and called him into the ministry. Zach changed his degree to Church Business Administration and around that time met his wife, Mandy. They were married in 1999 and have been serving together in ministry ever since. They have 3 children Gracie Belle, Eli, and Harrison. Prior to starting The Crossing, Zach and Mandy have served on staff at churches in Arkansas and Texas.

Her

Mandy was raised in the small farming community of Palestine, Arkansas. She loves spending time with family, shopping, and anything chocolate. After graduating high school, she attended Southwestern Assemblies of God University where she met Zach. They were married in July of 1999. She completed her BS in Elementary Education in 2001. After teaching for 3 years, Mandy decided to become a SAHM with her three beautiful kids: Gracie Belle, Eli, and Harrison. During that time, she began serving as a children's pastor in Sherman,TX, and became a licensed minister in the process. Mandy currently serves as the connection and care pastor for the church. Her desire is to be a pastor to the ladies of The Crossing, help maintain a "family feel" for all of those who attend The Crossing, and lead The Crossing in reaching out to the surrounding community.
