Rev. Michael Ellington
Welcome, I am Michael A Ellington, the pastor of New Horizon Missionary Baptist Church A.K.A New Horizon Ministries located in Bremerton, WA. I am married to my teenage sweetheart, Amanda Ellington, and the proud father of our four children, Michael Jr., Catanee, Malaee, and A.J.. I am a native of Illinois and accepted Christ around at the age of 28 years old. I try to be a humble, servant of God, and my ultimate desire is to do the will of God.
I received my GED at the age of 17, I studied business management at University of Phoenix and would love to return to school to study theology and get a Doctorate of Ministry when it becomes financial posible for my family.
I desire for New Horizon Ministries to be a community church; to be within the community proclaiming the Word of Christ, and providing good deeds whenever possible to the community. In pursuit of that desire I have aligned the church with other churches and non-profits in the community to offer and facilitate service like a computer lab, young men mentorship, and monthly community breakfasts with the organizations that offer services to the public.
I have a vision of implementing future services like community credit improvement seminars to increase the purchasing power of individuals and family members, establishing a community marriage enrichment ministry to strengthen the foundation of Christian marriages, a community clothing ministry closet to assist with clothing needs, and establishing a community “food bank” that will feed families in time of necessities for children and their family members.
I am a man who loves God, first and foremost; I love God’s Word and His people. I enjoy family time; walking, relaxing with Doggie Ellington, reading and learning whatever it is I can and then sharing what I have learned with others. I love preaching and teaching the Word of God with power, conviction, and simplicity without compromise.
I love the young, the elderly, the believer, the seeker, and the non-believer alike. The young, because they have so much to gain. The elderly, because they have so much to share. The believer because iron sharpens iron, the seeker because their eternal destiny is at hand and I love to introduce people to my Lord, and the non-believer because God loves them.
