My name is Reza Zadeh and I’m thrilled that you are checking out our new church website. I’d like a chance to tell you a bit about myself. My testimony on how I became a follower of Jesus is something l love telling people. I was born in Iran and now reside in Northern Colorado. I have seen the Lord work in tremendous ways in my life and my greatest fulfillment in ministry is raising up new leaders.
I currently serve as a Pastor for the Young Adult Ministry of Timberline Church (nine70) and for a new church plant (Timberline Windsor). One of the things that I am passionate about is avoiding the busyness pitfall that plague many local church pastors, I am convinced that as a pastor I have one role and that is to point people to Jesus Christ.
I have authored many articles on church leadership and enjoy counseling and coaching young pastors who want to make a difference in the lives of others. In the summer of 2010 my first book was published (99 THOUGHTS ON LEADING WELL) and my prayer is that this resource equips and encourages young leaders to follow Jesus and lead well.
I believe that every follower of Jesus should have 5 SMOOTH STONES that define their perspective on who God is and what our response to Him should be. My 5 SMOOTH STONES are: Abiding in Christ, The Trinity, Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross, Disciple Making, and knowing the call of Manhood.
I hope this blog can be a resource for you and your ministry. May you love Jesus and impact others with the Gospel.
