About The Pastor...
Zach Chamberlain has been serving Welsh Bethel Baptist Church as their pastor for the last two years. He is originally from the back mountain and has thoroughly enjoyed growing up and recognizing how vital this area is to the great state of Pennsylvania. Pastor Zach was raised on a small farm and knows the value of a hard days work. He is a graduate of both Moody Bible Institute and Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. When he is not in the study or working construction, you can find him reading, woodworking, playing table tennis and much more. Pastor Zach and his wonderful wife Deborah (who goes by Jolene) have been blessed with two children, Haddon and his new sister Addison. He and his family have enjoyed being part of what God has been doing at Welsh Bethel and are excited to see this community grow in their love and relationship with God.
