Zeke Pipher

Zeke has been the senior pastor at Heartland since 2005. He’s been married to Jamie since 1997, and together they have three children (Kate, Aidan, & Claire). Zeke earned his Master of Divinity from Talbot School of Theology (2001) and his Doctor of Ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (2005). Zeke is also an author and freelance outdoor writer. He recently published two books designed to help give men & boys a vision of masculinity and equip older men to initiate boys into manhood: The Wild Man fable and Wild Mountain Tribe 14-week guidebook. Zeke’s first book, Man on the Run: Helping Hyper-Hobbied Men Recognize the Best Things in Life was published with Howard Books in March of 2012. His second book, In Pursuit: Devotions for Hunters and Fishermen was published in June 2014 with Baker Books. Zeke is a regular contributor to Deer & Deer HuntingPetersen’s Bowhunting, and Whitetail News magazines. The Piphers live on an acreage in central Nebraska, a mile from the Platte River—the perfect place to hike, hunt, fish, camp, swim, chop wood, and run their dogs, Ezra & Hazel.
