Eagles Wings Staff Spotlight – Zach Smith

Zach Smith 

Question 1 – Tell us a little about yourself
“I grew up in Springfield, Ohio in the country on a farm. I have wanted to live in Florida for the majority of my life and I chose Saint Leo University near Tampa, FL. Growing up I played a lot of baseball and really enjoyed mathematics so I went to college wanting to study Sports Business and work in baseball analytics. After doing research on baseball analytics, I found out that my calling was not to sit in front of a computer all day and not talk to others. I started following Christ in the summer of 2012 after my sophomore year of high school at a Young Life camp. While in college I continued to lead high school students through Young Life and I really love ministering to those in need. I started playing disc golf a couple years ago and found out that the need in this community was greater than I ever imagined.  I am getting married to Alicia on May 12th, 2018, we met at Saint Leo and have been together for two years now. She is graduating this year with a Psychology major and has a full time job lined up with as a dog trainer. She will be training for obedience and even some service dogs. Her ultimate goal is to train dogs for the military or veterans.”
Favorite Verse:  John 10:10, “The thief comes to kill and steal and destroy, but I have come to give you life, and life to the full.” 
Question 2 – What are some interesting facts about you that nobody else would know?
“My favorite animal is a penguin, although I cannot stand to be cold.
Favorite sports teams are the Ohio State Buckeyes, Cincinnati Reds, and the New Orleans Saints.
I really enjoy family time, especially board games and cards.”
Question 3 – Where you are, currently, at on your support journey to become Full-Time with Eagles Wings?
“I started support raising in August and have raised a little bit over 10% so far. It’s definitely allowing me to trust more and more on God and be patient in his timing.  No matter how many goals or expectations I make of potential partners, God is the only one who can fulfill them.”
