Zion’s DNA

We are a church of prayer and worship as a lifestyle, longing for the fullness of God’s glory.

We wait on God until we hear Him corporately.  When we hear, we inquire of Him for the steps and timing.

We are committed to, and enjoy the protection and synergy experienced while serving in teams.

We see ourselves as a part of, and are committed to walk with, the church in the city, the church in the nation, and the body at large in the nations.

We have a heart for the “one new man” – Jew and Gentile.

We value the voice that God has given children, and choose to make room for them to share.

We are a local church functioning in the five-fold ministry as a team with a leader.

Who We Are

“I like to refer to Zion as a holy experiment; a place where we can aggressively and safely pursue the Lord, where we can worship freely and radically, where we can make mistakes and learn without shame.”
“As we sincerely and corporately seek to hear and follow the Holy Spirit, we are inevitably surprised with His refreshing presence and gracious leading.”

-Albert Zehr

Albert & Janet Zehr

Albert began teaching in a one room country school in Ontario in 1956, graduated from Goshen College, Indiana, in 1962 and was ordained in 1965 after graduating from Goshen Biblical Seminary with a BD.

From 1965 to 1971 Albert and Janet served as pastors in a Mennonite church in Ontario, meanwhile he served on the Board of Governors of Goshen College and Rockway Mennonite Collegiate. He was also Dean and teacher at Ontario Mennonite Bible Institute. Since then they also served in ministry in Inner Life and Charismatic churches.

Albert and Janet were married in 1959, have four married children and seven grandchildren. Besides having a home business and being a home maker, Janet has nurtured and cared for many beyond her own natural family, and been a constant co-worker with Albert.

They have become spiritual parents to many, in a number of nations. They feel called to bless and facilitate restoration between fathers and sons and to release the younger generations. They feel honored to travel and minister with their own children and grandchildren. Seeing the younger leaders released at Church of Zion has brought them much joy and satisfaction.
