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. They have been active with Church of Zion since 1996.

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.

Albert holds a doctorate in Nutrition and has developed health products and written several books in that field. He has also written Spiritual books and numerous booklets which have opened doors of ministry in many nations. These booklets are a reflection of the life principles experienced during our Corporate Walk at Church of Zion and are freely available at: www.albertjzehr.wordpress.com
