Ellis grew up in Moncks Corner, SC and after high school took his talents to Presbyterian College. It was during his first two years playing football there that a teammate began to challenge him to think seriously about his relationship with Christ. Through his involvement in Campus Outreach, Ellis grew as a follower of Jesus and after graduating in 2013 decided to join the CO San Diego team. Ellis and Hannah met during a CO summer project and quickly became great friends. Hannah, upon graduating from Davidson College, spent several years teaching overseas and moved to San Diego to pursue a degree in counseling at University of San Diego. They were married in the Fall of '17.
