Pastor Joe Ellis
Joe is originally from Anchorage, Alaska, but has called Telkwa home for the past seven years. He studied English at the University of Anchorage and received his Master of Divinity from Regent College in Vancouver, where he met his lovely wife, Michelle.
Joe's previous employment includes being a zookeeper, a mountain guide and a custodian. Joe enjoys roasting his own coffee, reading and hiking.
Pastor Michelle Ellis
Michelle grew up in Orangeville, Ontario and studied English Literature and Religion and Theology at Redeemer University. She moved out west to attend Regent College in Vancouver where she received her Master of Divinity.
Michelle divides her time between being a pastor and caring for her and Joe's three little kiddos and she's very thankful she can engage in both of these joyful and challenging roles! Michelle enjoys drinking the coffee Joe roasts, sewing and treasure hunting at second-hand stores.
