A native of Southern California, Anita loves the outdoors. Driven by her creative passions, she pursued her secondary education at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. It was here that she rededicated her life to Christ and began her quest to know God…a journey that will take a lifetime. Anita loves sharing the love of God through teaching of His Word and through everyday life. With a heart for those in leadership, her life mission is to exhort and guide the body of Christ into intimate relationship with God through teaching and preaching of His Word and through personal example, especially among ministry leaders.
In addition to her duties as Pastor of Special Projects, Anita is an anointed teacher of the Word of God and one of the women’s Bible study teachers at Loveland. Her in depth teaching of the Bible and passion for helping people understand it have made her a very in-demand speaker all over California. In addition to her vast ministry experience at Loveland, Anita and her husband served for many years as Senior pastors of Freedom Community Christian Church before they both returned to Loveland to serve in ministry with us. Both her past experience in ministry as well as her incredible gifts today make Anita an integral part of Loveland’s pastoral staff.
While Anita enthusiastically loves the Whole counsel of God, the verse that speaks to her each and every day is Galatians 2:20.”I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now life in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
Anita is married to D. Paul McZeal, her loving husband of over twenty-five years. Together they have four wonderful children. She enjoys spending time with her family; she is an avid hiker and enjoys swimming, walking and working out, traveling as well as reading and writing.
