Zach came to Troy from Pell City, Al as an undergraduate student in 2008. During Zach’s college years, God used a variety of people and circumstances to transform Zach from an infant in the faith to someone grounded in the Gospel and passionate about God’s work in and through the local church. After an attempt to uproot and move on after school that took Zach as far away as California, God called him back to Troy during the Fall of 2012. Zach soon met his wife, Fran, and developed a passion for Kingdom work in the community of Troy. Zach and Fran married in 2013 and accepted a full-time role at First Baptist Church in college ministry from then until July of 2018. That summer God would call Zach to serve as the Director of Ministries here at Troy Church. Zach and Fran have three growing boys- Jones, JD, and Jasper, and love being active as a family. In his free time Zach enjoys fishing, cycling, and pretty much anything else outside.



Eric Law, a Troy native, first became a believer at age 11 in a simple country church in Ansley, AL. After graduation from high school here in Troy he attended Troy University and began a more intimate spiritual journey with God. Eric returned to Troy in 2012 with a specific desire to serve the people of Pike County who served him for so long. As part of this service, Eric also had a deep desire to be a part of a church plant here in Troy, particularly a church plant where the focus is an authentic delivery of the scripture. Previously he participated in a church plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where the core beliefs he held regarding church and the gospel were challenged and refined. Currently he serves the community of Troy as a Family Medicine and Sports Medicine Physician, as a medical director for a local hospice and as father of two boys, Noble and Sam, and husband to Teresa Law. His deepest desire is to see lives transformed by the scripture and live a life that makes much of our Lord.



Adam was raised in Dothan, AL where his family still resides. Upon graduating from Troy University in 2007, Adam married his wife Ashley and they were both called to Christ early in their marriage. In 2012 Adam and Ashley returned to Troy with their twin daughters Camryn and Claire (son Roman born in October 2015). They never dreamed they would be called to be a part of a church plant, but when searching for a new church home they fell right in line with the mission of Troy Church and its focus on intentional discipleship. Adam is humbled to serve with the elders and leaders of Troy Church who are dedicated to the truth of scripture that is lived out in love like Christ has shown us. When Adam has down time, he primarily enjoys spending time outdoors playing golf, hunting, fly fishing and recreational shooting.


Rett McGowin - Elder

Born and raised in Pensacola, FL, Rett left home to attend Troy State University to major in music.  His desire was to be a session artist.  Meeting Donna, his wife of 38+ years now, God changed his mind and graduated in math education where he taught secondary education.  Christ redeemed him in 1986 and the whole paradigm of his life changed (infinitely more than just a major at school).  Their first child (Quay) was born in 1987 and two others (Chase and Molly Kate) shortly after that. He and Donna ministered at First Baptist Church in Troy in college life and young married couples.  He pastored a church in Banks, AL for 2½ years and returned to First Baptist Church.  In November of 2015 Rett was invited to preach at Troy Church.  He was awed by the love of Christ that flowed here.  Several months after that God led Donna and Molly Kate (daughter) to attend service here.  Very soon they all knew Troy Church was where the Lord personally placed them…Jesus’ real love for Jesus’ real people…which they needed.  It is a joy for Rett to be a servant leader alongside elders and team leaders that have such a creative vision for the Kingdom of God.

They  have experienced the radical love of Jesus and have a desire to share  that love with the city of Troy. They know you can’t do life alone and  believe that building authentic and transparent christian relationships  through small groups is one of the best ways to grow in Christlikeness.  They currently host the college small group in their home weekly and  love sharing life with these students. They also love going to the beach  and game nights with friends.
