OUR Staff

“Great leaders don't make excuses. They make things better. They are not unrealistic or blind to the difficulties they face. They simply are not discouraged by them. They never lose confidence that the problems can be solved. They maintain a positive attitude. Great leaders don't blame their people for not being where they ought to be; they take their people from where they are to where they need to be. Great leaders never lose faith that this is possible.”

― Henry T. Blackaby, Spiritual Leadership

  • Matthew Ellis: connections Pastor  ​  ​   

    My wife, Julianne, and I have been on staff since 2007. After being the Students Pastor for 10 years, I transitioned into the role of Connections Pastors in 2017. We believe that life is better connected. God did not call us to go through life alone, and everyone should be in a Connect Group. We are passionate about God, Connect Groups, and our two children Quinn and Jay.
