Overflow Ministries was founded by Zac Linton in California, USA. It exists primarily to preach the gospel. Please see our vision page for more information. Overflow Ministries is a member of the Next Generation Alliance (Luis Palau Network) and is also affiliated with the Transform the Bay for Christ network and local churches.
|“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor,
to bind up the broken hearted,
to proclaim liberty for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoner;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God.”
Zac Linton is the oldest of four in his family. He was taught the Word from a young age. His grandfather on his mother’s side was a missionary to Japan all his life and used to preach the gospel to villages after going town to town with a bullhorn. There is a legacy of godliness that Zac is simply the recipient of. On his Dad’s side, it was no BS and hard work, good character qualities to learn.
Zac witnessed many salvations and supernatural miracles at youth camps as a teenager. People with asthma cured, depression broken, young people weeping at the altars and confessing Christ, people speaking in new tongues, and miraculous healings all had a profound impact and marked him for life. Never would he doubt the reality or power of God. Having had various problems and tumultuous times as a teenager, it wasn’t until about age 21 that Zac fully surrendered to Christ.
Since then, he’s gone to ministry school at Bethel Church in Redding. (He doesn’t currently endorse all of their teachings but the overall ministry school experience was positive.) He then went on to serve at Promised Land Fellowship in San Francisco as the outreach pastor for about 5 years. In 2013 after receiving a vision from the Lord, he moved back to Berkeley to found Overflow Ministries and begin preaching the gospel on campus.
He has traveled to India, Nicaragua, and the UK in addition to cities around the USA preaching the gospel and leading missions teams.
He is a graduate of UC Berkeley and has been involved in a variety of other endeavors such as launching two small businesses during his twenties.
Zac resides in the San Francisco Bay area and is involved full time in executing the vision of this ministry.
Zac has a brother Nik and two sisters. Both of his sisters are married and doing well. Both of his parents live in the Bay Area.
He enjoys snowboarding, video games, Cherry Garcia ice cream, frisbee, traveling, coffee, and movie quotes.
Some of his heroes in the faith are:
Brother Yun “The Heavenly Man,” Donnie Moore, John Wesley, Charles Finney, Martin Luther King Jr., Reinhard Bonnke, Paul Anderson, David Yonggi Cho, Kathryn Kuhlman, his mother Sharon and grandfather Morris Jacobsen, Raja Reddy from India, and first and foremost Jesus.
