David Zahl Contact David Here.

David Zahl is the director of Mockingbird Ministries and editor-in-chief of the Mockingbird website. Born in New York City and brought up elsewhere, David graduated from Georgetown University in 2001, and then worked for several years as a youth minister in New England. In 2007 he founded Mockingbird in NYC. Today David and his wife Cate reside in Charlottesville, VA with their three boys, where David also serves on the staff of Christ Episcopal Church. He is the author of A Mess of Help: From the Crucified Soul of Rock N’ Roll and co-author of Law and Gospel: A Theology for Sinners (and Saints). His most recent book, Seculosity: How Career, Parenting, Technlogy, Food, Politics, and Romance Became Our New Religion and What To Do About It, appeared in 2019 from Fortress Press. Even after all these years, he’s still mourning the end of Calvin and Hobbes (and hoping that Morrissey and Marr will bury the hatchet). His favorite theologian is probably a cross between Johnny Cash, Flannery O’Connor and his brother Simeon.

She studied at Concordia University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. In 2021, Cali graduated with a degree in Christian Ministry and Nonprofit Management.

Sarah Condon Contact Sarah Here.

Sarah Condon is an associate editor of the Mockingbird website, author of Churchy, and co-host of The Mockingcast. She also serves as the Episcopal chaplain to Rice University. She went to Yale for Divinity School. And she only drinks organic milk. If you’re starting to feel crappy about your life reading this, please keep in mind that Sarah is deeply neurotic, originally from a state with the highest teen pregnancy rate (I see you, Mississippi), and is Mockingbird’s in-house expert for the Housewives Franchise. She is astonished that God loves and forgives even her. And she can’t stop writing about it.

Bryan J Contact Bryan Here.

Bryan J is the voice behind Mockingbird’s chirps on Facebook and Twitter. He’s probably watching you tweet right now, like those guys scanning the Matrix code looking for Agent Smith. When Bryan isn’t playing wack-a-mole with internet trolls, he’s also contributing to the website, magazine, and conferences. Bryan is the pastor at Epiphany Anglican Fellowship in Ligonier, P.A.

Deanna Roche Contact Deanna Here.

Deanna Roche is the administrative director of Mockingbird Ministries. She began the first third of her
life in a New Jersey suburb of New York City and then spent a number of years moving around the US
and Europe. Her last position was with Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, FL, where she
served as the Human Resource Director. At Coral Ridge, she was introduced to the freeing gospel of
grace by a guest speaker named David Zahl. When she and her husband Jim moved to Charlottesville,
VA, in 2018 to be closer to children and grandchildren, she had no idea that it was the home of
Mockingbird Ministries. To her delight, David offered her a position and she is blessed to be spending
the last third of her life working with the amazing and talented staff of Mockingbird.
