Zer was born in Vallejo, CA, was saved and called into ministry in the Philippines, and has lived the majority of his adult life in the great state of Texas. He met his wife, Farrah, in 2014, and they have been married since 2017. In 2018, God called them to Fielder, and since joining the Fielder Family, the Lord has grown the Surigao family. They have three boys: Kai, Phin, and Ozzy. 

Zer serves as the Online Pastor and as one of the Teaching pastors at Fielder. He is passionate about reaching people for the Gospel where they are, both in-person and online. He believes in using personal interests – content creation, dancing, playing video games – to point people to the Better Way, that is, Jesus Christ.
