Alec Zacaroli is a writer, attorney, and co-founder of 25:40, a ministry dedicated to serving poor, vulnerable children in rural southern Africa. He was born in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, but spent most of his childhood in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 1980 Alec returned to the United States, where he earned a degree in journalism and worked as a reporter for more than ten years. He received his law degree in 1998 and has since been practicing in Washington, D.C. Alec and his wife, Amy, founded 25:40 in 2003, when the Lord drew together his connection to South Africa with her experience of having been adopted. The ministry is founded on Jesus’ command in Matthew 25:40 to love Him through serving and loving others. Alec and Amy have four children, Nick, Sophie, Hannah, and Rebecca, and currently live in Northern Virginia.
