Oliver Frischknecht has been pastoring CZT for over 16 years. He and his wife Lisa have a big heart for the church in Thalwil and the body of Christ worldwide. Oliver comes from Switzerland and Lisa is from the USA. They have been married for more than 27 years and have two sons. Their oldest son, Victor is studying theology at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Joel attended a Bible School in Texas and is currently working as a chef in a restaurant in Zurich. They are both actively involved in the church. Oliver and his family served as missionaries in India from 1999-2004 where they founded a Bible school in the state of West Bengal. They handed over the daily operations of the school to Indian nationals who were trained under them, but continue to support it financially and through teaching at the school during their visits. They have a heart for the church to be reflective of heaven, a place where people from every nation can feel welcome and at home.
