What we Are About
Our Mission, Vision, & Methods
ZealousHomes is on a three-fold mission to glorify Jesus Christ. We believe our mission is one of the most important endeavors on earth.
INSPIRE ZEALOUS CHRISTIAN LIVING. We want to glorify Jesus Christ by helping you fuel the zealous desire within you to live more faithfully for Him in all areas of life. Our culture needs to see authentic Christian zeal burning brightly in the growing darkness.
AMPLIFY FAMILY FAITHFULNESS AND DEVOTION. We desire to glorify Christ by partnering with you and other believers to build healthier, more zealous homes. We believe that we grow stronger in healthy community.
MULTIPLY ZEALOUS HOMES AND CREATE COMMUNITY. We want to see many faithful homes become ministries that will impact their communities for Jesus Christ! Our hope is that these little outposts of faith can build relationships with other faithful homes. We desire to build them into a network of zealous homes that will encourage and strengthen one another.
Partner with you and other sincere disciples.

So It begins
Pastor Wayne Sullivan has been dreaming and praying for years about ministering to families in a greater way. He desires to see families embrace authentic faith and zealous discipleship. ZealousHomes.com was born on May 14, 2015.
Since that time, Pastor Wayne has been busy raising his two daughters alongside of his loving wife, Crystal, while ministering in North Carolina churches. God used this time to teach Wayne more about discipleship and the importance of family dynamics. While the dream grew, he has been learning web design. He has attempted to start our site on a couple of previous occasions, only to sense God telling him to postpone.
All that has changed now! God has opened the window of opportunity and continued to develop his heart for this ministry. On September 22, 2022, Pastor Wayne officially launched this new endeavor, hoping to be a blessing to whomever God wills. Our hope revolves around the impact that zealous homes can have on their local communities.
Pastor Wayne has been planting “Zealous Church” in Nashville, NC since April 2022. He is also seeking to establish “The ZealousHomes Network” to help plant new house/micro churches that seek to glorify Jesus Christ as we gather His people, grow zealous disciples, and encouragingly equip and send one another out to pursue ministry in God’s Kingdom as we journey through life together.
ZealousHomes was the spark that God used to ignite a stunning zeal in Pastor Wayne’s heart and we trust He will do the same in yours. We hope you will join us as we embark on this mission together.
