Zach Douglas

Associate Pastor


I am originally from Northern California and was raised in a Christian home and was baptized when I was 7 years old. I went to college with the goal of preparing for youth ministry and my time in college strengthened my faith and showed me how vast God is and the grace he has extended to believers. In college, I met my wife, Emily, and we moved to Tehachapi in 2016 after we married in September of that year. I graduated with my M.Div. from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2022.

We live in town with our son Judah, our dog and absolutely love living in Tehachapi. Ever since we moved here in 2016, God has made it clear that COBC is where he has called us and we wouldn’t want it any other way!

Fun Facts:

  • I am a die-hard Raiders and Lakers fan
  • The lake is better than the ocean
  • I love coffee and all breakfast food
