Elliot is the Pastor of Awaken Church and is responsible for teaching, developing leaders, and planning the future of Awaken Church.
After graduating from bible college, he worked for several churches, leading teams in evangelism & pastoral care, and teaching bible college courses. He is passionate about creating a church where everyone works together to create “the church they’ve always dreamed of”. He believes that people are tired of settling for “religion and routine” and want a church that makes them come alive.
An avid reader and recovering chocoholic, Elliot can easily find himself reading books about Jesus, business development and leadership during most of his free time. When he’s not reading, he is scouting out sushi restaurants for date nights with his wife, Leticia, watching re-runs of 24, or walking his two dogs. Elliot & Leticia have two daughters, Hannah Grace and Abby Joy.
Elliot says, “My favorite thing about McAllen is the people. People treat one another as more than just neighbors or co-workers – here, you’re part of the family.”
