We are so happy to announce and welcome our new, settled pastor, Wes Ellis! His first Sunday with us will be October 17, but he and his wife and two adorable children are on their way from New Jersey, where has been Associate Pastor at First United Methodist Church of Toms River since 2016.
Wes is originally from Ramona and was raised in First Congregational Church of Ramona, graduating from Ramona High School. He then went on to Azusa Pacific University, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and Biblical Studies. He returned to Ramona and served as our Director of Youth Ministry here at FCC until 2012, when he went to New Jersey to attend Princeton Theological Seminary, earning a Master’s in Divinity and a Master’s in Christian Education. In 2016 Wes entered the University of Aberdeen in Scotland to pursue a Ph.D. in Practical Theology. He was awarded that degree this month, specializing in intergenerational ministry.
We welcome Wes Ellis as an author, pastor, and returning friend. Please join us in that welcome!
