Richard Ellis

Orphan Age

When Christ left this earth to ascend into Heaven, He left us with the command to make disciples.  Following Christ and being a fisher of men go hand in hand.  Unfortunately we are living in an “orphan age” where people think they can just go to church, give their money, and never be part of the family.  Spiritual growth comes from being discipled and then discipling.  We can see how this worked when the apostles started churches, they continued to teach and disciple their spiritual “children” so that those “children” could grow up and raise their own spiritual “children” and so on.  Being a follower of Christ means that you are part of the family and can no longer live as a detached orphan attending an orphanage.  You must get involved and pursue Christ’s call to make disciples.

About Richard Ellis

Authentic... Genuine... Sincere... This guy is the real deal. He loves God. He loves his wife Rebecca and his 3 daughters. He loves people. He loves his job. He loves Texas BBQ. He loves an occasional round of golf. And he loves the Dallas Cowboys (but don’t hold that against him!).

Richard grew up as a missionary kid in Brazil, coming back to the states to finish his education. He graduated from Baylor University in 1982 with a BA in Oral Communications, and earned his MDIV in 1985 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, making him the sixth generation of pastors in his family. His early days of ministry included serving for three years as the Single Adults Pastor at the First Baptist Church of Dallas.

Then in 1997, Richard Ellis founded Reunion Church, a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, non-denominational church in the heart of Dallas,Texas. Dallas needed a church like it. And it would need a pastor like Richard. So Reunion Church was born. And now the radio show and the website (www.RichardEllisTalks.com) join the Reunion Church community under the leadership of this guy. And we’re all the better for it!
