Jared Ellis was called into ministry at the age of 16 years old after being delivered out of a life of darkness, depression and depravity (watch the video story). Since then, he has been gripped with the message of revival - moving out of compromise and complacency into a radical lifestyle of pursuing Christ. He has traveled all over the world preaching the good news of the Gospel and leading worship, with each meeting marked by miracles. He is a rising voice to this generation and is being used by God to awaken young people to the message of Jesus. 

Jared graduated Christ For The Nations Institute worked with Youth For The Nations (a summer camp reaching over 4,000 students) for three years as the Worship & Conference Director. He also spent a year as a worship leader at Bethel Church in Redding, CA while attending ministry school. At age 21, Jared launched into pastoral ministry and took over a youth ministry in Abilene, TX with a handful of students. In a few months, Youth Church exploded into a movement of multiple-hundreds of students each week. Salvations, baptisms, signs, wonders and miracles becoming normal occurrences.

Jared spent a year working with the staff of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC where he helped launch a permanent campus facility, develop and run eStudents. 

He spent two years as an Instructor of Youth Ministries at Christ For The Nations Institute, where he developed and taught next-generation youth pastors. He specialized in ministry structures, leadership development and volunteer structures. 


Currently, Jared is the Associate Pastor of E2 Church in Sacramento, CA. He is also a nationally-known communicator and travels as an itinerate preacher. His energy, creativity and passion connect any and every audience to the message of the Gospel. The core of his message will always be revival.
