Over the last forty years, Ellis André has pastored five churches and served as a Regional Minister. He is currently the Senior Pastor of White Rock Baptist Church. He has addressed congregations and conferences in different contexts and taught at several theological colleges. Ellis believes that the consistent preaching of God’s Word is crucial to the renewal of the church. He believes there can and should be appropriate variety in the pulpit, and that there is much to learn from preachers from right across the homiletical spectrum. He also enjoys working collaboratively with his colleagues as they attempt to lift the standard of preaching in the local church. He is married to Ruth and they have two children and four grandchildren. For recreation, he loves reading on a wide variety of topics and sports of all kinds (nowadays as an armchair expert!).
