Ellen is our Elementary Children’s Director, overseeing kids ministry for Kindergarten-6th grade. She is passionate about seeing kids experience the presence of Jesus and teaching them how to pursue a relationship with Him. She firmly believes that there is no such thing as too young to understand the gospel!
Ellen grew up in Waco, Texas, where she experienced a calling to ministry through involvement in Antioch Waco. She worked on summer staff at Pine Cove Bluffs family camp for four years, where she discovered a heart for kids ministry, as well as met her fun-loving husband, Nathan. After graduating with her degree in accounting from Ouachita Baptist University, she and Nathan got married, moved to Dallas, and jumped into life at Antioch Dallas. When she’s not hanging out with the kiddos, you can find her drinking coffee, taking road trips, crafting, having board game nights with friends, and cheering for Baylor sports.
