Chad Ellis

Chad Ellis serves as the senior pastor of Gillionville Baptist Church. Before joining our team in 2015 he served churches in Alabama, Texas and Georgia. He holds degrees from Auburn University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Our pastor is passionate about expository preaching (teaching the Bible as it was written, sentence-by-sentence), discipleship (seeing people’s lives transformed by following Jesus) and connecting with the next generation (he spent 6 years as a collegiate minister with Baptist Collegiate Ministries). He and his wife Sheri have two children: Maddie & Timothy. In his free time Pastor Chad enjoys distance running, hiking and spending time with his family.
