Shane Ellis – Senior Saints & Visitation Director

Shane Ellis has been the Senior Saints and Visitation Director at Faith Memorial since 2008.  He and his wife, Delma, have been married since 1976.  Shane has a deep love, compassion, heart, and spiritual gift for our Senior Saints and widows.  He works to glorify God and ensures that our seniors and widows have an active ministry through monthly trips, birthday celebrations, widow / widower luncheons, fellowship, support, and encouragement.

We believe the role of this ministry is to minister to the sick, lonely, hurting, being a great friend, and knowing God through love.  (I John 4:7 – Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God)

Shane also serves as Visitation Director.  He ministers by visiting hospitals, nursing homes, hospice homes, member’s homes and families, shut-ins, and consoles bereaved families.  Shane serves with a grateful heart and appreciates the opportunity to serve God through this ministry.
