Hi! We are Zach, Hanna Walter and Goerge Foote. Our goal is to equip every student with the knowledge and desire to reflect Christ through their lives. We feel that it is important for every student no matter their age, to recognize that God wants to use them for His purpose and glory each and every day; at church, at home, at school, when they are with others and when they are alone.

I’ve worked at EBC for 9 yrs. in the office and 6 years for our school. I enjoy working and love my job. I also like to clean. I like to create things and I’m looking forward to trying stain glass and maybe some of the other arts that allow me to express me a bit of my creativity. I am looking forward to football season – have high hopes for our SOONERS!

I’ve been around Eastwood for many years, beginning back in the nineties when I worked as an Audio Engineer, and one of my jobs was to run sound for Eastwood services and events. That led me to attending, singing in the choir, and occasionally filling in as a worship leader. Over the past 25 years, my wife, 3 kids and I have served in several churches, but no matter where we have served, we have always considered Eastwood as a part of our family! I’m thrilled to be serving as Media Director now, and am excited about what God is doing here!
