About Us

Greg and Carlene met at Northern Illinois University through our activities with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. We married in 1985 and lived in Zion IL for several years, and Carlene grew up in this medium sized Chicago suburb. Zion Heritage creates opportunities in Southern Africa for us to share the good news of Jesus.

We left the United States in 1993 with our two boys Ryne (5yrs) and Corbin (3yrs) to become missionaries in South Africa with the Zion Evangelical Ministries of Africa (ZEMA).

Our youngest son, Kyle, was born in 1998. We also feel very blessed to have two daughters and one grandson who have joined our family!

In the beginning, our hard-copy newsletters, “From the Deepest South” were mailed out to interested friends. In time, we began creating newsletters digitally on our computer and sending them out by email. And now, here it is …our first efforts at creating a blog for anyone interested in the Seghers’ ministry in South Africa.
We have focused much of our lives on getting to know and sharing the gospel with the amaZioni people of Southern Africa. These people called, amaZioni or zionists, are a part of the African Independent Church Movement. There are millions of Zionists who have historical ties to Zion City, USA. We have loved working with and getting to know the people of South Africa.

We are invited to share with Zionists in their churches, many come to study God’s Word in our Bible schools, and we have developed many close friends.  Many of these have joined with us and continue to share the Good News and disciple others.
