Zac Cannon – Zac – along with his wife, Jess, and their children, Dexter and Penelope – were welcomed to Chestnut Grove in the summer of 2017. After a decade-spanning adventure in California (including making movies in film school, a rewarding time of ministry, not nearly enough time on sandy beaches, and the enigma that was a vanishing cat named Steve), the Cannon’s decided their plot needed a change of location; returning home to Virginia to explore what God had spent so much time and energy preparing them for. Zac can often be found sipping coffee while getting lost in a good book or the weeds of his own imagination. His love languages are sci-fi and cheesecake
