Ella met Jesus in the fall of 2009 at a Youth gathering. Immediately she knew that she’d found something that had been missing from her life. She loved the outward focus of a Jesus-led life and how it went hand-in-hand with her lifelong desire to help others. In 2012, she married her husband, Caleb, and years later they would be part of the team that helped launch Captivate Church. In 2019, she joined Captivate’s staff as the church’s administrative assistant, using her years of experience in retail banking to help run Captivate’s day-to-day operations. What she loves most about ministry is the opportunity to live out her calling and help lead, encourage, and inspire women from all different backgrounds. She enjoys leading a Wednesday-night Community for women, journeying with engaged couples through pre-marital counseling along with her husband, and walking alongside women through one-on-one mentoring.
