Reign Ministries

Erika Zimmerman

Director of Kairos


I am originally from the Madison, Wisconsin area and I am a huge Wisconsin Badger fan! I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies in 2001. After graduating, I completed a discipleship school in New Zealand where God confirmed my passion for discipling students and missions. In 2003 I joined Reign Ministries to help start and staff the Kairos Discipleship School. I became the Assistant Director in 2008 and Director in 2011. It has been awesome seeing God work in the lives of students over the years through the ministry of Kairos! In 2015 I married my best friend Christian, and in October 2017 we welcomed our beautiful little girl, Kaija Joy, into our family. Christian and I are both very active, enjoy sports, and love doing life together! We especially enjoy supporting each other in our passion for working with students in our specific roles as a discipler, teacher, mentor, and coach. It is our passion to see lives transformed and walk alongside students to encourage them to pursue God with all their heart.

I Like:

Coffee, Wisconsin Badgers athletics & the UW Marching Band, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Twins, board games, running half marathons.

I Love:

My family, spending time outdoors hiking, biking, & kayaking, one on one conversations, going on new adventures and traveling to new places.

i can't get enough of:

Spending time with my awesome husband & daughter and personal quiet time in the morning.

People say:

I surprise them how competitive I can be when it comes to sports and games.
