Eric Zellner is the Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church, Auburn.
Born and raised in Nashville, Eric received his undergraduate degree from Auburn University in 1996. After college, his career took him to Birmingham where he worked in the fields of health insurance and worker’s compensation. In 1998, Eric married Susan Grainger. While serving as a deacon at Faith Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Eric and Susan sensed a call to full time vocational ministry. This led to a move to St. Louis, Missouri, where Eric earned a Masters of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in 2006.
After seminary, Eric served for five and a half years as Associate Pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Huntsville, Alabama. In 2012, the Zellners moved to Indianola, Mississippi where Eric pastored First Presbyterian Church for six years. In April of 2018, Eric received a call to plant a new PCA church in Auburn. The Zellners moved to Auburn in June to plant and pastor the people that the Lord would gather to Christ Presbyterian Church.
Eric and Susan enjoy sharing the love of Christ through building and nurturing relationships. They have four children, Olivia, Emma Frances, Cord and Lucy. The Zellners are delighted to be a part of God’s kingdom work here in Auburn.
