About Wakening Ministry

Making disciples for Jesus Christ through trusting relationships and relevant studies, both in person and online

“Pastor Linda’s study groups are like an online coffee meet-up whilst sitting in one’s own comfy chair.”

Mission & Vision

Online ministry and consultations

Rev. Linda Zastovnik brings more than 25 years of experience serving within the local church to a new online setting. Rev. Zastovnik is an ordained deacon in the United Methodist Church in the Western North Carolina Conference. The positive response to her online classes inspired a vision for this ministry and outreach in the nontraditional online venue.

While many local churches are challenged in these changing times to support a qualified staff, Wakening Ministry provides leadership on a ministry-by-ministry basis. Linda serves as a consultant pastor, teacher, trainer and can provide skilled Christian ministry assistance in any areas that a church pastor identifies a need. Ask about “Bible Adventures” for kids, Confirmation classes for students, Family Ministry and Women’s Retreats. And always, know that your church family will receive skilled pastoral care whenever and wherever needed.

What participants are saying about Pastor Linda’s online classes…

“I am really enjoying the deep dive into the scripture. I have read Acts several times but have gotten so much more out of it this time with your guidance.”

“I really enjoyed this class and would be very interested in attending your next session! You have a beautiful gift in sharing His Word!”

“I never had such a thirst for biblical and other religious knowledge before I traveled with Linda to the Holy Land. And, Bible study with Linda is so refreshing and energizing. I learn so much that when one session is over, I can’t wait for the next one.”
