Jared Ellis was called into ministry at the age of 16 after being delivered out of a life of darkness (watch the video story). He spent his teen years preaching and leading worship in his home state of NY. After high school, he attended and graduated from Christ For The Nations Institute with his degree in Practical Ministry.

From then on, Jared worked alongside some of the nations top churches and ministries, such as Bethel Church (Redding CA) and Elevation Church (Charlotte, NC). His experience in the field ranged from Youth Ministry, Worship & Creative Ministries and Executive roles. He published his first book at age 23 and years later, he taught at the college level as a professor of Youth Ministries at the very institute he attended.

Jared is now the Lead Pastor of E2 Church in Sacramento, CA - a dynamic church that is reaching hundreds of people every weekend with the Gospel of Jesus.
