PASTOR RON ZAPPIA is the founding and senior pastor of Highpoint Church (a multi-site church located outside of Chicago) starting in the year 2000 and is the Bible teacher on the national radio program, Highpoint Ministries w/ Ron Zappia.  Pastor Ron, and his wife Jody, came into a saving relationship with Jesus while on the brink of divorce in the first year of their marriage. God not only saved them, he changed them, restored their marriage, called them into full-time ministry and now uses them to reach thousands across the country for His glory. 



JODY ZAPPIA is the wife of Pastor Ron Zappia. After a successful career in corporate America, she went on to lead in a variety of ministry contexts, including serving for years as a Women's Director. Jody brings wisdom, humor and a needed transparency into the conversation of marriage. To Jody, it's a miracle that God was able to restore her marriage, and now she leverages that to help others find rejuvenation and restoration in their marriage.
