After high school, Zack realized his calling into ministry and became a full-time ministry student at Moody Bible Institute and then at Grace College. Zack joined the Reimer Road team in 2016 and brings energy and passion for ministry to the church. He is excited to have the chance to bring students closer to Jesus through relationship building and Bible teaching.

Zack enjoys music, sports, motorcycles, and outdoor adventure activities like exploring old structures and ruins.

Tracey Krska
Church Secretary

Tracey is also a native of Wadsworth and endeavors to continually learn (what she considers a gift from her dad). She came to know Jesus shortly after marriage at 21 and continues to seek God's will in her life. Professionally, Tracey has worked in risk management, marketing and communications, and training and instructional design prior to joining the RRBC staff in 2017. Her degree, Bachelor of Science in Technical Training, has contributed to how she approaches study of scripture and leans heavily on the passage of I Corinthians 6:19-20 to guide in her study of the Bible; "do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
