After spending 7 years in the business world, Pastor Ron and his wife, Jody, felt called to plant a church. He quit his job, went to seminary, and in the year 2000, stepped out in faith with Jody and a handful of people to plant Highpoint Church. What started as a small gathering of people in a high school auditorium has grown to be a multi-site church reaching thousands across Chicagoland and Illinois. Pastor Ron has since raised up and sent out church planters to plant vertically oriented, gospel-centered churches around the country through the Highpoint Send Network
Ron Zappia Ministries, the teaching ministry of Pastor Ron, was launched in 2013 to provide comprehensive teaching from God’s Word through radio, podcasts, conferences, and print resources including Ron & Jody’s Marriage Knot book.
Pastor Ron is a graduate of Bowling Green State University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL. He and his wife Jody live in Wheaton, IL and have three adult daughters Allie, Erin, and Emily.
