Rev. Herbster with wife Julia and daughter Mabel
Zachary Herbster grew up in the United Methodist Church in Sunbury, PA in a Christian home. Under the influence of his uncle, Zachary moved toward a Reformed understanding of the faith, and gravitated toward Greek and theological studies. After receiving his BA in classics at the University of Pittsburgh and an MA in classics at the University of Pennsylvania, he worked as a high school Latin teacher and in business for a short season before entering Westminster Seminary. In God’s providence, he was licensed to preach in the OPC in the Presbytery of Philadelphia in September 2022 before passing his ordination exams in the Presbytery of New Jersey in April 2023. Zachary is blessed with a godly wife, Julia, and a beloved baby girl, Mabel.
