Our Story‎ > ‎


Zachary T. Francis

Zachary has a heart and passion for reaching out to all people through the arts. As a young child, he was always acting, writing plays and behind a camera taping the lives around him. Zach has co-produced five of his original full-length dramas on stage, as well as a number of short skits and film projects. He is also the percussionist for 1heart Praise Band. When not in the midst of creating, Zachary works full-time as a microbiologist in Downtown Indy. He and his wife Susannah faithfully attend Southport Church of the Nazarene in Indianapolis.

Susannah Francis

Susannah has been in love with music ever since she climbed up to her Great Aunt Betty’s organ at the age of two. Her passion led her to performing in school musicals and choirs, as well as participation in competitions, college courses in Music Education and private vocal lessons. She currently is a vocalist with 1heart Praise Band, directs the drama productions written by her husband, is a member of her church choir and a frequent soloist. During the weekdays, Susannah runs her administrative ministry, Kingdom Design, from her home office in Indianapolis.
