Our Pastors

Pastor David Rogers

Pastor Shawn Ellis

Heeding God’s call to serve Him, Shawn Ellis has given up a successful career as a toxicologist and president of an environmental consulting company to serve as the Assistant Pastor at the AppleCreek SDA Church in the Ontario Conference.

Shawn holds a Bachelors of Science specializing in Toxicology and a Masters of Science specializing in Occupational and Environmental Health.
Shawn also holds a Masters’ in Pastoral Ministry from Andrews University in Michigan.
Shawn’s spiritual journey began in 2006. Following his baptism, he made personal commitment to God to say “Yes” to whatever He asked of him.
It began with Spiritual Gift workshops and continued with becoming a Bible Worker and a Lay Evangelist. However, God was calling him to more.
When Shawn was accepted into studies for Pastoral Ministry, like the disciples in Luke 5, he abandoned his “fishing nets” of his consulting company of 20 years to follow his Saviour.
He knew that God wanted him to be a fisher of men.  Shawn loves evangelism and is constantly looking for new ways to Share Christ with the world.
He has preached and done workshops all over Canada, parts of the US, the Caribbean and even in the United Kingdom. His presentation style incorporates multi media that helps him reach both the young and the young at heart for Jesus. Shawn has been married to his wife Lian for the past 8 years and has three children Sophia, Shanice and Devon.
