Author: Alec Zacaroli

Alec Zacaroli joined Burke Community Church in 2020, following a 20-year career in law and 7 years in journalism. He received a Master in Theology (ThM) from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2019, and also holds a Juris Doctor from American University, and a Bachelor of Arts in journalism from George Washington University. He and his wife, Amy, have four children, Nick, Sophie, Hannah and Rebecca. In 2003, Alec and Amy founded 25:40 (www.2540.org), a ministry dedicated to bringing the hope of Christ to orphaned and vulnerable children in rural, poverty-stricken areas of South Africa, where Alec lived as a child. In addition to their passion for the least of these, Alec and Amy enjoy hiking, exercising together, traveling, and most especially (as former reporters) reading and writing. Alec’s call to ministry became clear to him through John 14:6 – when he found the imperative of sharing the truth that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and the only path to the Father was his reason for being.
