Six years ago, Pastor Zack and his wife Autumn set off on an amazing adventure to start Waterfront Church! Zack is an Oklahoma State University Cowboy from Lubbock, TX, and Autumn is a Texas Tech University Red Raider from Nocona, TX. Zack is also 2 classes shy of having his Masters in Divinity from Southwestern Seminary. In college, Zack played a little lacrosse, preached for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and worked for four and a half years waiting tables at Red Lobster. The Randles have 4 kids (Lulu, Jack, Harper and Baby Zeke) and they love baseball, traveling, Ted's Bulletin, and Waterfront Church!
Josh and his wife Morgan have called Washington, DC home since 2013. After serving in the Marine Corps for 8+ years Josh resigned his commission in 2016 and began his journey of earning his Master of Divinity with an emphasis in first century Christianity and biblical languages. Josh has previously attended/led biblical study trips alongside Marc Turnage to Israel and Turkey, and he has a deep passion for seeing the ancient lands of the Bible come alive in the twenty-first century. Josh and Morgan are originally from Missouri where they met in college and have been married for almost twelve years. They have a son, Gabriel, and live on Capitol Hill.
Marc Turnage holds an MA in Ancient Judaism and the Origins of Christianity from Jerusalem University College. He is currently finishing his PhD in the Land of Israel Studies Department at Bar Ilan University located in Ramat Gan, Israel, under the supervision of Professor Esther Eshel. Marc has taught graduate and undergraduate students at several universities in the United States and abroad.
Marc moved to Israel to study because he felt that the issues of spatial, historical, cultural, and spiritual settings played a vital role in how we read the Bible. While studying in Israel, he fell in love with the lands of the Bible. He has been guiding groups through Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, and Italy for over twenty years. Marc is a highly sought-after guide and teacher and routinely trains and lectures local tour guides about guiding Christian groups. He is passionate about leading biblical tours that deliver the very finest experience and helping people understand how to read the Bible.
Marc has published widely for both academic and popular audiences. His most recent book, Windows Into the Bible, was named by Outreach Magazine one of its top 100 Christian living resources. Marc is a widely sought-after speaker, and a gifted teacher. He resides in Springfield, MO with his family.
