I want to welcome our newest team member, Zeke Pipher to RealityBowhunting.com and RBTV. I discovered Zeke’s work in Bowhunter Magazine several years ago and was immediately impressed with the message he had to share.
Zeke and I share a passion for bowhunting critters…and using that passion for impacting the lives of others. He is a friend and true brother-by-another-mother. I’m glad to be partnering with Zeke and excited about what he brings to the table for RealityBowhunting.com in the way of articles, HeartShot entries, blog content, photos, videos, gear reviews, and words of wisdom to make us better…both in the woods and in life.
Zeke and his beautiful family call Nebraska home. It is there he annually takes his share of turkeys and big Nebraska bucks.
Here’s the skinny on Zeke…
Zeke’s a writer, pastor, husband, and father of three young children. Bowhunting for Zeke is a way to spend time with God, strengthen friendships, and provide meat for his family and for other families in need. Many of his articles celebrate how hunting can be a values-driven activity which is both fun and fulfilling.
Zeke is a freelance writer and photographer whose articles and photos have appeared in numerous publications, including Bowhunting World, Deer and Deer Hunting, Bowhunter, and Petersen’s Bowhunting magazines. He’s writing a book that is scheduled for publication with Howard Books in 2012.
Since he could walk, Zeke’s spent every possible minute outside. His passion for the outdoors led him to earn a degree in Biology from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1993. After college Zeke worked as a graduate assistant in the Forestry, Fisheries, and Wildlife Department at the University of Nebraska. His research enabled him to work closely with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
Zeke serves as the lead pastor of Heartland Evangelical Free Church in Central City, Nebraska. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Talbot School of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. His sermons are broadcast on the radio each week throughout central Nebraska. He’s currently working on a book about a country pastor’s first year.
“There’s no sanctuary more breathtaking than the natural world,” Zeke says.
